Neighborhood: Chelsea
Address: 75 9th Ave.

The Chelsea Market is the jam. Where else can you get some of the best coffee in the city (at Ninth Street Espresso), the best baguettes (at Amy's Bread), and pick up a great bottle of wine (at Chelsea Wine Vault) for dinner, all in the same place? From browsing in Posman's Books while snacking on brownie samples from the Fat Witch, or just basking in the intoxicating scents wafting from the specialty food boutiques, this is Holy Grail for food fanatics, and not even tourists can take that away from them.
