The Crown Market stuffs its shelves with food prepared fresh daily, including meat, produce, and kosher grocery items supervised by a diligent duo of rabbis. Crown’s to-go department comprises a rich variety of pre-prepared fare, such as rotisserie chicken ($5.49/lb.) and noodle kugel ($5.99/lb.) that remain studiously separated from their kosher counterparts and travel with ease from market to table or underground lair. Chomp on a hearty sandwich from the New York–style deli, stuffed with fillings such as chunky chicken salad ($6.99) or hot pastrami ($7.99) and escorted by a pickle and a choice of coleslaw, potato salad, or macaroni salad. Freshly cut watermelon ($0.69/lb.) holds court in the packed produce section, and scratch-baked brownies ($1.49 each) and black-and-white cookies ($1.69 each) coexist comfortably in the full-service bakery, squabbling only over dishwashing duties.
