Amish Market, Turkish-Influenced Market, Cafe, and Catering in Several Manhattan Locations

Recommended Posts

A couple blocks away from the Millenium Hilton and the 9/11 rebuild and memorial is a great market and cafe called the Amish Market. Why the name? No idea. It is really like a small Whole Foods. They have groceries and gourmet items and a huge hot bar, salad bar, dessert and pastry section, wood burning grill that makes pizzas and sandwiches, taco and burrito station, etc, etc. This is a great quick stop for breakfast or lunch, although they are open for dinner too. We grabbed a bunch of stuff off the hot and cold bars after a long long shopping spree at Century 21. Everything was fresh and nicely prepared, they had a great selection of drinks and desserts and a nice little area with tables to sit at. Anyway if you are staying nearby, this is a great little place to know about for a quick stop.

The Midtown East location (240 E 45th St.) is still good.  Here's a recent picture of their excellent pizza bread meatball sandwich.  Unfortunately, it's only available certain days, which is how I know that the steam table food bar and made-to-order subs are also both well above average.
