Eating out on long trips is expensive and, if you choose fast food, it’s unhealthy. Sure there’s a wide selection of AirBnB’s with kitchens, but who wants to cook and clean on vacation?
Gourmet food certainly sounds expensive, but take a look at the growing list of gourmet supermarkets, many with in-store seating, for just the right combination of healthy and affordable 😉👍
Fortunately for travelers to NYC (and many other cities around the world), the list of gourmet supermarkets with dining areas, like Fairway Market and Dean & Deluca, and Eataly is growing fast. The first Eataly Gourmet Italian supermarket we ever visited was in Istanbul!
Find the nearest gourmet supermarket to your current Manhattan location 🗺 :

Eataly is an Italian gourmet supermarket with several sections for in-store eating, and even a section with table service and a bar!
Two questions for you: How do you find places to eat when you’re away from home? Do you have any gourmet supermarkets where you live? Let me know in the comments.
