Nibbling around the edges of our incredible food world

The view from Starbucks Coffee in Chappaqua, the New York State hamlet that former President Bill Clinton -- and future President Hillary Clinton -- call home. A Starbucks employee says the president comes in when he is walking his dogs, accompanied by at least two Secret Service agents.

At a Whole Foods Market in Manhattan, the store's "core values" are posted near the checkout counters. Compare them to the hysterical hype you'll find at Fairway Market's many branches in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.


Fresh Direct will deliver cage-free eggs to your door in Manhattan for $3.79 a dozen. Organic cafe-free eggs cost more.

Port of Call, an upscale, all-you-can-eat Asian fusion buffet in Hackensack, getting a delivery from Sysco, one of the big restaurant suppliers.


I saw this U.S. Foods truck at a service area on the New Jersey Turnpike.

Does Main Produce in Dumont shop for fruit mainly at Costco Wholesale in Hackensack, above and below?


On East 48th Street in Manhattan, a homeless man collected recyclable bottles and cans from trash receptacles on Sunday evening, explaining he gets 5 cents each or $50 for 1,000, a goal he said is easily attainable. He smelled as if he hadn't showered in days. 

A moveable feast in Manhattan, where a food vendor towed his cart home at the end of a long day.

On East 47th Street in Manhattan, Dainobu Japanese Deli and a second business, Snafu Bar, which was showing World Cup matches on Sunday evening.

On the lower level of Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan, Shake Shack was doing a brisk business serving antibiotic- and hormone-free Angus burgers on Sunday evening.

But the terminal's famed Oyster Bar was closed, above and below. The restaurant's dining room is under a vaulted ceiling.


Are there any good restaurants in Forks, Pa.? I just passed through on Monday, and didn't have a chance to explore.
