Over the years I've heard of Ruth Reichl sightings at Fairway. Which leads me to wonder - where are some of your favorite places to shop for ingredients and kitchen equipment in the city?

meat: Florence. And Lobel's when I'm willing to take out a mortgage for my meat.
Cheese: Murray's.
Bread: Sullivan Street
Produce: Union Square
Smoked salmon and caviar: Russ and Daughters.

But, realistically, I live on the upper west side, so most of the time I shop at Fairway, Citarella and Zabar's, because they're close to home.
