Wear a Crash Helmut – Did you ever try and get around this place with a shopping cart? The best and nicest people are those behind the prepared food counter. They're helpful, friendly and sincere. There are no sweets at the bakery counter and has anyone ever heard a cashier say "thank you?"
Birthdays – It's a great place for a quiet birthday dinner. The service was fantastic and the staff even sang happy birthday to my guest along with ice cream and brownie with a candle. Even though some say it's pricey, I find it a treat to splurge from time to time. Overall, I've never been disappointed. I just wish the marketplace wouldn't close so early, so that I could do some shopping after dinner.
The Upper East Side's beloved specialty food store. – In Short
Grace herself is a Balducci, the famed family of upscale food purveyors. So it's no surprise that this neighborhood market is such an institution, brimming with organic produce, fresh baked breads, artisanal cheeses, rows and rows of shelved foods and a long, colorful prepared food takeaway area selling mostly Mediterranean-inspired dishes by the pound. Customers pick up a gift basket for special occasions or order catering.
Great Graces! YUM! – I used to adore shopping at Grace's and still do for FABULOUS fresh fruits. Everything from Mangoes and Guava to exotic melons and 3 kinds of cherries (Bing, Ranier and Sour).
The prepared food is also nice - and of course, pricey.
Since I live closer to Citarella and Agata & Valentina, which is slightly better quality, I have pretty much stopped going to Grace's.
Very good overall but too pricey – Grace's is a treat, but I have found that almost everything there is more expensive than it is at Citarella, and if anything Citarella is better quality, so I have all but stopped going to Grace's.
There are some things about Grace's that make it superior. First of all, they have a lot of produce items that other stores don't have, such as baby brussel sprouts. There are other specific items that I can only find at Grace's but for the most part it is simply too overpriced for me to choose it over Citarella, only a few blocks uptown from it.
