After our apartment tour we headed south to check out Chelsea Market. Big disappointment, not at all what we were expecting. It really reminded me of a upscale food court with overpriced food and fancier people. Not okay. So after refusing to eat anything there simply out of principal we walked back to a place we saw on the way there called the Grey Dog. It was a cute little cafe type place that sold unique sandwiches and was full of real New Yorkers so it fit the bill. After a long and leisurely lunch we headed back up to midtown and stopped by the Sullivan Street Bakery. We heard that this little hole in the wall bakery had the best bread in town; however, since we were stuffed from lunch we just picked up a huge cookie. It was worth the walk.

I think the single best think we had was the corn gratin; however, the cheese plate was delish too. It included wonderful local cheese, bread, honey, almonds, and Concord grapes. PS it is absolutely amazing how much concord grapes actually taste like Welchs grape juice! And yes, according to this list we did drink 9 beers but 4 of which were on the sampler so don't freak out.
