Let’s take a moment of silence to celebrate with our East Coast food and wine kin. After more than 30 years of bragging about our favorite affordable, Polynesian-themed gourmet grocery store, New York City is getting a Trader Joe’s.
No more rubbing it in their faces. They can now get Two Buck Chuck, wild blueberry juice and Valrhona chocolates like the best of us. The store will open on March 17 down the street from a Whole Foods and not far from the City’s own household grocery names, Zabar’s, Sahadi’s, Agata & Valentina. To them, we say good luck.
