Located in the old Nabisco building just north of the Meatpacking District, you’ll find a warren-like maze of restaurants and specialty shops. There are many hits, but we like Los Tacos No.1 for authentic Mexican and Num Pang for an Asian-inflected sandwich. And, if cooking a special meal at home is an option, we’d pick up our bread at Amy’s, dairy at Ronnybrook, fresh groceries at the Manhattan Fruit Exchange, and crustaceans at The Lobster Place (they also do great pre-made rolls). You’ll also find Bowery Kitchen Supply, Chelsea Thai Wholesale, Kingdom of Herbs, and Posman Books, where the offerings are more suitcase-appropriate.
