    Weekdays are the best days to investigate every closely packed corner of this specialty food store, an NYC foodie institution that offers fresh, bulk and packaged fine foods from around the world, including the Middle East, Asia and southern Europe. The staff will help you choose among the bulk nuts, seeds, grains, spices, olives, chocolates, rice, coffee, cheeses and dried fruits—samples are readily available!—though you should be prepared to take a number and wait. The real treasure is at the deli counter in the back, where you can pick up delicious prepared foods: tasty spinach pies and eggplant Parmesan; mujadara, a cold salad made with lentils, rice and fried onions; tzatziki, a tangy cucumber-garlic yogurt dip; and some of the best hummus in the City. —PT
