As we told you a couple weeks ago, the east side Whole Foods is open, bringing our favorite generic deli to the upper east corner of the ML boundaries. Since I don’t work anywhere near there, it took me a little time to make the trek to check out what they’re offering, although my suspicion was that it would be like the one on the west side. I was right, which is great news for you Midtown east readers. For the rest of us, it’s a bit of a hike, but can be a rewarding one.

East side lunchers rejoice! Whole Foods, which just might be the best generic deli in Midtown, is opening its East 57th street location tomorrow (btw. 2nd+3rd). If you’re a super-early riser, you’ll be interested to know they’re hosting a bread breaking ceremony at 8:30 a.m., serving breakfast refreshments while supplies last. Doors officially opening at 9 a.m. Although the grocery store is by no means a bargain, and you have to be extremely disciplined with their pay-by-the-pound prepared food options (we know how quickly that can add up!), you’re not going to find a better quality by-the-pound lunch anywhere.
Midtown East Whole Foods To Open August 23rd: Back in October, we told you a new Whole Foods was coming to Midtown East, on 57th street btw 2nd+3rd avenues. Whole Foods posted to Facebook that the store now has an open date: August 23rd! Once heralded as the best generic Midtown deli by our fearless leader, we can't wait for this new location to open its doors.

Last month, On Tap at Whole Foods Market opened at their Columbus Circle location. Beer at a supermarket? Sounds kind of weird, but considering Whole Foods is the best generic Midtown deli, the food at On Tap may be worth a look-see.
Midtown East-ers, rejoice! In case you didn’t hear about it here, here or here, Whole Foods is opening a new location on E. 57th St between 3rd and 2nd. The project, which has been in the works for over 3 years, broke ground back in May and now sports a sign saying that the store will open Summer 2012 (even though their website says 2013), so let’s hope they stay on track with that. This time next year we could be munching on some delicious prepared foods and shopping for our organics during lunch. Huzzah!
