The New, Improved Gristedes Opens

Updated with News 12 Brooklyn Video after the jump
The new and improved Gristedes on Henry and Clark is open and if the pistachio muffins are indication, it’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

The improvements are noticeable upon entry as you are hit with the welcoming sight of fresh baked bread and the smell of fresh brewed coffee. The new layout flows freely in a way that makes more sense than the old store. We just made a quick lap but the inventory certainly does seem bigger and more comprehensive. Finally kudos to the friendly service we received today. Let’s hope it stays that way.

In attendance for today’s Grand Re-opening – Gristedes top dog John Catsimatidis, City Councilman David Yassky and State Senator-elect Daniel Squadron.

Update: News 12 Brooklyn was on the scene:

    Some Gristedes products are almost twice as much as expensive as other stores. Check out Tazo teas. Almost 9 dollars compared to the almost 5 of other better looking, clean, and practical places. Cheese is sold as Gold, as if they are the only one to carry the product. No to talk about the un-freshness of the vegetable who is sold already rotten in the packaging. Or the fish, already gone before the selling date.
    Excuse me. I will give up on it. I will walk those 10 minutes more to buy my food somewhere else.
