Profile

This venue is closed.

Jefferson Market's a calm, European-style grocery that doubles as a kind of gustatory oasis for savvy shoppers. With hundreds of artisanal cheeses, glistening produce, an ocean's sampler of fish and seafood, and a full-service butcher, the store serves discerning home chefs (and lucky eaters) in a comfortable, one-stop venue. From the ample plate-glass windows to the large ceramic tiles that line its floor, the shop has spared no expense in making the retail experience a soothing pleasure. There are dozens of olives, oils and vinegars; cheeses so soft that they're wrapped in palm fronds; and imported nuts and fig-cakes from Spain that make attractive gifts. The stores central island showcases hot and cold takeout foods, like Moroccan vegetable salad and chicken tarragon, so it's easy to put together a meal from start to finish—whether made from scratch, entirely premade, or a little of each. Helpful counter staff explain culinary mysteries—such as how to use quince glaze—without shifting into a hard-sell overdrive, striking a balance that's entirely welcome in this high-end, high-quality market.

Extra
