Send in your answer by 5pm today and you will automatically be entered into the drawing to win a Manhattan Milk Dairy Products Delivery. Winners will be contacted via email to arrange for prize delivery. Manhattan Milk delivers only within Manhattan so please enter only if you are eligible for delivery.

On a recent late night forage for sweets, I headed over to my neighborhood bakery, Batch. To accompany my cupcake, Chef/owner Pichet Ong recommended a cup of Manhattan Milk. One sip of the whole milk and I was sold. It hit the spot and sated my craving.

Manhattan Milk Company actually is a local delivery service of dairy products including milk, cheese, eggs and yogurt from Pennsylvania Dutch country. So now as a Manhattanite, you can enjoy farm fresh, organic milk delivered straight to your door!

Glass bottled quarts of milk come whole, 1%, skim or chocolate. The whole milk has a layer of cream on top that just screams of goodness.

This week’s prize is delivery of three bottles of milk, a dozen eggs and a string of cheese!

Deliveries are made once a week on Wednesdays (early, by sunup), and in person by the company’s creative director, Frank Acosta. Frank and his partner, Matthew Marone, want to make sure that you experience that personal touch. Get to know your milkman!

Manhattan Milk products can be ordered through their website for delivery. You can also get a taste of their milk at Batch (150B W 10th St).

Thanks, Manhattan Milk, for this week’s Baking Friday contribution!

Mostly at Trader Joe’s. Three buck chuck is really good. Also at Union Square Wines and the Manhattan Wine Exchange…near home and work.

oh this baking friday is the best prize ever! will go perfectly with the strawberry cobbler i plan to make this weekend ;)

okay, so wine. a few places particularly tickle my fancy. chambers street wines for most thoughtful wine selection (green, small, and good), le du’s for french (and entertainment. . . i love jean luc!), tribeca wine merchants for small finds, and pasanella and sons for ambiance (a truly beautiful establishment. . . in fact, just bought some wine there last night!)

and i think that should cover it!

Astor W&S – great selection and good deals, often times have in-store tastings. Fun place

Manley’s on 8th Avenue near Jane Street. Aside from the basics, you can find some rare bottles from the owner’s cellar. They have a model train that circumnavigates the ceiling of the store, which runs at Christmas that I always look froward to seeing. Another favorite is Crossroads on 14th Street that amounts to a combination warehouse/curiosity shoppe.


Jun 13, 07:34 AM

Trader Joe’s, which is surprisingly never too crowded, or that warehouse-like wine shop around 8th street and university place.


Jun 13, 07:58 AM

Another vote for Astor Wine. Great selections & deals (especially on Tuesdays).


Jun 13, 08:03 AM

vinovino, chambers st. wine, sea grape, uva

we usually get our wine from sherry lehman or warehouse (near astor place) but once again I’m pregnant and out of the wine drinking…but very interested in the milk delivery!!

Gnarly Vines in Fort Greene! It’s amazing for wine and hard to find spirits. On Myrtle Avenue. If you don’t live in the area it’s certainly worth the trip, or at least getting delivery.


Jun 13, 08:14 AM

Crush Wines, Astor, and Chambers are my faves… sometimes for something obscure.


Jun 13, 08:18 AM

Bottlerocket. They have a variety of wines in all price ranges and tastes.


Jun 13, 08:21 AM

I usually buy at Garnet on 68th and Lex and don’t know the name but a very nice place on 71st and 1st- stays open later. A bit pricey but you can’t go wrong with their recommendation!


Jun 13, 09:00 AM

Sip in Park Slope for personalized service and good vibes.


Jun 13, 09:02 AM

Slope Cellars! They have great selection and are always helpful in finding delicious, affordable wines.


Jun 13, 09:13 AM

sip & thirst in bklyn for selection and vibe, astor for champagne selection. if anyone wants to get together for some good beaujolais or champagne, let me know!

Another Trader Joe’s shopper here…


Jun 13, 11:04 AM

I’m new to NYC, so I havent actually purchase wine here, but would love the milk delivery!


Jun 13, 01:48 PM

Astor whenever possible – even though I live in Brooklyn!

Though I have bought wine from Trader Joe’s when I am there I have to say when I actually go out to shop for wine there are two places on the UWS that deserve some attention for the attention they give their patrons…

Pour Wines — the concept of shopping for wine based on the food you are planning to eat is so buyer friendly as are all of the staff in this cute little store (BONUS: they’re next door to the UWS Crumbs location; cupcakes & wine, life doesn’t get any better)

67 Wine & Spirits — Large volume wine store with a small boutique store feel and lots of free tastings.

Trader Joes – not just for the price. The staff really goes out of their way to make sure you get the right wine.
