Nice supermarket in upscale section of NYC. Singles selection pretty limited and poor to be honest. But there is a nice Japanese type beer bar with 8 nice craft beers on tap and lots more bottles and cans available. Well done WF.
Visited 31-OCT-2016 with the Family following a walk of nearby Central Park :-)
Small selection compared to Tribeca but still some gems. You can by Grimm here:-)
Bought a few bottles - one of them the fantastic Stillwater, Whole-ilicious.
Stop by if you are near the Park. Otherwise find one of the other Whole Foods in Manhatten.
So stopped in to get new Grimm beer didn’t know they had this whole tap room. The whole store was packed and bottle select Had a few nice items but nothing crazy. Draft had 3 Grimm, j Wakefield, and a couple others. Only time for one but plenty I wanted. Prices standard high. Pretty cool.
Visited midday on a Thursday. Located on the lower level of the TIme Warner building shopping dining industrial complex. The basement location makes the entire store pretty dark, though the food selection is typical high quality Whole Foods. Nice pub in the back that looked like a great place to grab a pint if the rest of your group is shopping upstairs. The beer selection is about average (in the pub area) for New York Whole Foods, well under average for the beer selection in the store proper. As mentioned, there is an upcharge ($2) for taking bottles to go from the pub.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Very close to the central park in the basement of a big glassy multi-functional building. I’ve been to this store a few times because of its convenient touristy location. Not the best beer selection of the NYC Whole Foods, actually, if anything it is probably the less good selection of the three main NYC Whole Foods. Nonetheless they had the likes of Elysian, Avery, Two Brothers, Captain Lawrence, etc. And of course the usual array of Belgian and imports. As for the non-beer stuff, it’s Whole Foods, and this one is surprisingly big considering that its prime location and its basement arrangement. If you happen to be staying in the touristy area you will enjoy this store. If you’re beer hunting you’ll probably want to skip this one.
Stopped on Sat. morning for a beer. The ’On Tap’ bar opens at noon, lots of sitting places across long wooden tables, this place actually looks very nice. Selection is good, you can get a flight of 4 beers for $12 also lots of bottles to choose from. Overall OK.
After seeing Louis CK at the City Center, my wife and I walked a couple of blocks back up toward the circle and stopped in here for something to drink on the train home. The place is bigger than you’d expect as you come in, and feels fairly open. It was a bit tough finding the beer section, but finding the bar is quite easy. Didn’t see the bartender when I stopped in there and didn’t feel like waiting for whomever it was to come back out of the back, so I don’t know if they do pint growler fills or not, but there were prices for pints through half gallons on the board, and you can drink there which is nice. Bottle selection in the actual beer section was good, not great, but I really would have liked to have seen more singles available. Probably more of a nit-pick sort of thing since the average beer consumer probably wants a six pack, but I usually want singles, especially for the train. Worth stopping in if you’re in the area, but the other Whole Foods (near New Beer) has a better selection if you can get further south.
