I missed yesterday’s press preview for the opening of the new Upper West Side specialty food store and cafe, Gastronomie 491. But you can get some idea of what the place is all about from these photos, supplied by the market’s publicist.
The prices don’t seem totally over-the-top (A dinner menu charcuterie plate goes for $15.00; Sicilian style seared yellow fin tuna, $22.00).
Owner Nicole Ahronee seems to have put together an attractive, welcoming spot. How does the food taste? I’ll get back to you on that.
