Yes it may be a tourist trap, but Grand Central Market is a good place to go when you’re looking for a feast of the eyes. Inside you’ll find Murray’s Cheese (even though they don’t have any Northern English cheese!), Zaro Bread Basket, Hand made chocolate, a spice shop and too many bakeries to list selling everything to make your mouth water. If you’re as bad a cook as I am, Grand Central Market is the best place to go pick up a meal and pretend that you made it yourself. As well, every dessert you’ve ever seen in a NYC TV show or movie is in here. We’re talking a Chocolate Babka (not cinnamon) and a Black and White Cookie if you’re a Seinfeld fan. If you’re not afraid to drop the cash, eat your way through this market.
