My little neighbourhood grocer! The funny thing is, I recently found out that it's actually the biggest grocery store in New York City. How cool. I'm not at all surprised, because the Houston-Bowery Whole Foods is more like a small metropolis than a grocery store. Most of the upper floor is a quick-service restaurant with practically every type of cuisine. They also have a coffee shop, a health & beauty department, a giant bakery, a sushi bar, an enormous deli, and tons of other great sections that are just out of control in size and assortment. Additionally, they have the biggest craft beer selection I've ever seen, with special labels from all over the world. (It's basically a separate store in the corner of the building.) The employees are great too. They pack your backpack or bags for you, and they do it very thoughtfully so that you can carry them home with ease. This Whole Foods is top notch, and it really makes you look forward to running out of groceries again.Recommended for:

Amazing beer selection in that part of the store! Ingredients and tools to help you make your own beer as well. Crazy awesome!
The rest of the store is what I expected from a Whole Foods and I got in and out.Recommended for:

As I mentioned in a previous post, Whole Foods Tribeca has launched a Supper Club as part of their new Wellness Club. Dinner at the Supper Club is 3 courses – all you can eat, costs $12 for members, $15 for non-members and occurs every Wednesday from 6pm-8pm. It’s open to the public and anyone can attend. Cheapeats decided to head downtown and check it out.
The dinner is held upstairs near the cafe, in an intimate glass enclosed room. Executive Chef Juan Pablo Chavez and his team, prepared the meal and share the ingredients and preparation with the crowd.
Being on a mission to detox and get healthier in 2012, I was excited to sample this plant based feast but a bit skeptical. Not because it was a vegetarian menu but that it was prepared with no oil, salt or dairy.
Well despite the fact, it was SO healthy, it was DELICIOUS. (Salt was placed on the table for personal seasoning) It was light, clean, flavorful and very filling. No room for seconds for me.
