Via Fresca takes its name form the Italian word for “fresh,” and a commitment to fresh ingredients can be found in every dish the gourmet Italian market and eatery serves. Tender circles of fresh mozzarella pair with tomatoes on cold sandwiches, and freshly sliced Boar’s Head meats line paninis on artisanal ciabatta bread baked in house. Inside the cozy dining area, glass display cases sport specialty desserts such as tiramisu, flourless chocolate cakes, and coconut macaroons. Patrons may opt to dig into housemade crab cakes on the outdoor patio, order meals to serve families back home, or cater special events such as 6-foot-sub-eating contests.

Situated two hours north of the Big Apple in a historic red barn built in 1864, the 800-acre Black Horse Farms grows florid fruits and vegetables to sate patrons' stomachs while supporting environmental stability. The sun-ripened earth treats—such as beefsteak tomatoes and sugar sweet corn—are only sold during the seasons in which they are most wholesome and undergo a rigorous quality inspection that includes washing, grading, and skin exfoliating before going to market. Black Horse Farms' gardening center yields equally vitalizing vines, including sweetly scented house plants, annuals, perennials, and remarkably sprightly bicentennials ($1.99+).
Garbing players for film and vaudeville since 1917, The Costumer's collection of timeless and updated ensembles bedecks torsos for theater and seasonal holidays.
