a great selection of groceries, and quality takeaway food and beer, a very large and cheap selection of beer, If it's close by, it's handy. I liked it

“Works in a pinch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

When it opened years ago, it was considered incredible, an upscale version of the usually decrepit supermarkets we were used to in the city. Nowadays I find the cashiers unusually brusque and unhelpful even for NY. It looks nicely laid out and clean, but they don't have facilities for going to the bathroom despite the fact that you are buying things from them and are about to go in your pants. Kind of colorful but yet the variety is not as great as you might expect. Good for emergencies.

“Stay Away”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Fpood Emporium on the corner of 49th near Times Square should be avoided. The service wass overtly rude and the food was overpriced and only fair. Stayed in hotel around the corner and after one viosted would walk blocks to buy food anywhere else.

“omg sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Pretty good sushi! The sushi at this market is better than some sushi places. My wife says better than a lot of sushi places, actually (well, we live in Texas, not exactly the raw fish capital of the world). While I disagree with that, I still think that it's comparable, which is saying a lot (it's a grocery store, for crying out loud!). Melt in your mouth salmon. Mm.

Conveniently located in the hustle and bustle, great place to have a quick affordable convenient lunch, and re-supply for the day.
