Owner Andrew Goldin lives in the building and has a degree in hospitality management. That experience, combined with world travel to many of the globe’s best markets, led to the unique experience that is to be Fresh Fanatic. Goldin says that the store will eventually boast an impressive range of international foods – Thai, Japanese and even Russian. They’ve already ordered bread from Germany.
Fresh and organic it will be, but Goldin promises it will be much less expensive than Whole Foods. He also promises the most reasonable prices on prepared foods in the tri-state region.
This looks even better than I'd imagined, and I'm going to try and get in there this weekend. They're doing a soft open today or tomorrow, with an official grand opening on Tuesday, August 18th.
UPDATE: I've posted my own impressions after stopping in a couple of times over the weekend.
