Daily Candy Calls Urban Radish a 'Foodie's Paradise'

Downtown has it all: Little Tokyo, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Cooper Building blowout sales.

But you’d have a better chance locating a needle in one of those proverbial haystacks than finding a grocery store worth its salt.

Until Urban Radish sprouted up. The new, 8,000-square-foot marketplace is a foodie’s paradise, with certified organic produce from local farms, sustainable and ethically raised meat and seafood, and gourmet products like Fra’Mani handmade cured meats and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams.

There’s also a deli serving freshly made sandwiches like The Radish (radishes, Vermont butter, radish greens vinaigrette) and Jambon Parisien (French ham, Gruyere-style cheese, Dijon aioli), a cheese shop (presided over by a cheesemonger who worked at Cowgirl Creamery and apprenticed at Neal’s Yard in London), a charcuterie section, and a wineshop with a patio for enjoying postshop vino.

Bottoms up.
