Back in January, we noted some renovations underway at the Whole Foods Market® Bowery.
Phase 1 of these changes were unveiled last week. For starters, the bakery is now inside the main entrance on East Houston and the Bowery... it looks pretty much like the same stuff that they previously sold in a different location of the store (if any regulars of this place would want to chime in...)
The revamped space includes some seating ... providing for action views of the ongoing East Houston Reconstruction project...
Meanwhile! Back where the bakery stuff used to be ... there's some construction...
The prepared foods section has been revamped... and Whole Foods downsized the salad bar region.
The salad bar stations are down from three to two. During this leisurely morning visit, one had the breakfast food out ... while the other station had the standard salad bar fixings. Missing were the specialty items like cauliflower drowned in tahini and the kale salad surprise. (Surprise! There's feta and Craisins® in here.)
It feels a lot more cramped back here. Can't imagine what it is like during prime lunch/dinner salad bar hours.
