We've been shopping here for years, although these days we go to Westerly Market much more often. This store does a decent job of stocking basic vegan necessities in the coolers and so on, but there are some annoying issues with the front of the store hot foods section. For example, the vegan pizza options at the pizza station, how do I put this lightly? They suck. They used to be interested ,but for some reason, the decided to do away with Daiya cheese (that was a great option) and any vegan meat analogues, and when they did use Daiya they didn't know what the hell they were doing. Way too much. Anyway, onto the salad bar.
Not sure if there's an award for blandness, but if so, this salad bar wins, hands down. They must've done a ton of research to make this salad bar as bland as it is. And, it's overpriced.
Anyway, it's great to have a Whole Foods in the part of Manhattan, but it would be nice if they cared a little more about vegans in the prepared food section.
