Found this place
in Bay Shore a couple weeks ago. It's unusual. I would call it an upscale grocery/gourmet store.
I guess. Mostly it's food stations (pizza/Italian, sushi, bakery, deli, coffee, and whatever else they have). The kind you'd see in a lot of grocery stores (except for pizza/Italian)--but without a lot of groceries around them. Or something.
Think of cocktail hour at a swanky wedding. With some groceries.
I'm sure the people there can explain it better.
It's tiny. At least the Bay Shore one. There's another store in Roslyn Heights
. Don't know how big that one is.
We've tried a few things. The pasta is decent, not great. Very cheesy and mushy, of course--it's been sitting around for hours. The cupcakes and cannoli are pretty good. Lately my wife has been getting the small, layered mousse cakes every weekend.
