Gastronomie 491, a new gourmet specialty market and cafe opened yesterday to the public. The market features a cafe, open kitchen, prepared foods, artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, chocolates and baked goods, as well as gluten-free items. Every product has been personally chosen by owner Nicole Ahronee, with a focus on artisanal products from small producers made with all natural ingredients-- both locally and around the world.
Enjoy shopping for seasonal fruits and veggies, pick up items for a picnic in Central Park, or dine at the cafe. Food is prepared by executive chef Steve Gutterman and sample goods with Martin Johnson, the cheese, charcuterie, and beer expert.
