Indulgences of the highest order can be found in profusion at STAR PROVISIONS,
the gourmet market that flanks the entrance to Bacchanalia. Irish butter so rich you'll never want Land O' Lakes again, blissful chocolate croissants on the weekend, and spicy, upscale meatball sandwiches are but a few of the treats to be found as you wander through the various rooms of the market. The cheese shop remains the finest in the city and the breads in the bakery have gotten crustier and more deeply flavorful. Lunching at nearby Taqueria Del Sol or Figo Pasta and then strolling through Star for a decadent treat has become our favorite weekend foodie ritual.
