Foragers City Grocer Opens in Chelsea

A Healthy Takeout Alternative

foragers city grocer!

Some call your Seamless obsession lazy. We call it unavoidable.

At least until famed Brooklyn food store Foragers City Grocer expands to Chelsea today.

Expect a larger selection of ecofriendly foodstuffs, local produce, meticulously vetted meats and fish, plus chef Douglas Monsalud’s rotisserie-centric take-out meals (teasers for the shop’s restaurant, debuting mid-March) for the truly oven averse.

We understand old habits die hard and thus have created a checklist. Print it out; take it in; thank us later.

__ Rare heirloom dried Mexican beans.
__ The city’s freshest goose eggs.
__ Ready-to-cook cider-brined pork chops butchered in-house.
__ Crepinettes made from lemon grass and ginger pork in caul fat.

Ready to Eat
__ Spanish tortilla with chorizo and chard (with cold-pressed juice) for breakfast.
__ Tuna conserva on baguette.
__ Ga ro ti rotisserie chicken with broken rice (soul food, Vietnamese style).
__ Smoked beef navel pastrami with Sixpoint beer mustard.

To Drink
__ Small-batch, artisanal wines and quirky varietals.
__ Craft-distilled spirits.

Seems less daunting, no?
