Midtown East Shopping

With the likes of Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., and Saint Laurent lining the streets of Madison and Fifth Avenues, it’s no surprise that Midtown East shopping is synonymous with luxury. But, beyond the mammoth flagship stores and whimsical window displays, there’s plenty more the NYC neighborhood has to offer.

Around every corner, Midtown East invites you to discover something new — whether it’s a storefront calling out designer fashion up to 70% off, supermarkets full of organic foods, or bakeries where you can sample Parisian pastries.


Midtown East is home to plenty of stylish deals and unique finds. Whatever it is you’re hoping for — a quick spot to grab a book or a department store where you can spend hours sorting through designer clothes — it’s here waiting for you.

Bloomingdale’s: Opened in 1886, the flagship Midtown East location of this famed upscale department store is a veritable New York City icon. The cavernous, block-long space sells everything from homewares by Ralph Lauren and Sparrow & Wren to beauty products from Chanel and MAC and designer clothing from the likes of Gucci and Vera Wang. Exterior Of Bloomingdale'sThere’s a free Bloomingdale’s app to help you navigate the racks, but you can also work with personal shoppers found on the first floor. And should you find yourself with an appetite while shopping, head to the on-premise Forty Carrots restaurant for healthy fare or Magnolia for the famous New York banana pudding.

Zara: Zara is home to all the latest trends in fast fashion, and is a one-stop shop featuring shoes, clothing, accessories, and swimsuits for all your vacation photo needs.

Ann Taylor: Whether you’re looking for a casual day look or a nighttime getup, this mainstay of elegant women’s wear is sure to have it. Both comfort and craftsmanship are hallmarks of Ann Taylor’s clothing, from little black dresses to professional pantsuits.

Sephora in New York CitySephora: This is one of the larger Sephora stores in New York and is sure to have any beauty or skincare products you may need, from facial moisturizers to lipstick.

Saks Fifth Avenue: Located on its namesake avenue—and spanning an entire city block—this is the flagship location of the now famous high-end New York clothing store. Beyond designer boutiques and an expansive shoe department, you’ll also find a large selection of beauty goods and homewares.

American Girl Place New York: The American Girl Place is the center of the American Girl doll world. It’s a great place to let your child (and yourself!) explore and see the full collections.

CB2 : While you expect timeless style and classic design from its sister brand, Crate and Barrel, CB2 is where you can find furniture and decor that’s edgy, cool, and modern. The brand’s designs are often created with small spaces in mind, delighting shoppers with multifunctional pieces that can work in multiple spaces.

Saks Fifth AvenueSaks OFF 5TH: If you’re on the hunt for designer duds and a deal, Saks OFF 5TH is the place to go. Delivering the fashion you crave at prices that can’t be beat, the store offers a unique shopping experience with over 800 designer brands for kids, women, and men.

The Atrium Shops and Cafes: The perfect place to make the most of a lunch break, the Atrium Shops and Cafes is a sort of mini mall. Here, you can find well-known stores like Barnes & Noble and FedEx Kinko’s, free WiFi, and a variety of places to eat, including the Melt Shop.

Yankees Clubhouse: Regardless of what your home team is, Yankees Clubhouse is a must-see. Here, you can pick up souvenirs for your favorite Yankees fans, stock up on baseball gear, or appreciate memorabilia from notable players.

Grocery Stores

With all the grocery stores in NYC, and specifically in Midtown East, it’s almost impossible to not find what you’re looking for. Gourmet cheeses? Fresh, organic produce? Unique ingredients with an Asian flare? Check, check, and check. Thanks to the wide selection of items offered by the supermarkets of Midtown East, you’ll find all that (and more).

Morton Williams: A family-owned retailer since 1946, Morton Williams’ 15 stores are designed to reflect the neighborhoods in which they’re located, and that includes their grocery stores in Midtown East. Along with food and alcohol items, the store offers a hot and cold buffet where you’ll find a slew of freshly-made eats, including deli sandwiches, mac and cheese, soup, sushi, and salads.

Trader Joe’s: Value is a concept Trader Joe’s takes very seriously. It’s a grocery store where you’ll find no sales, no gimmicks, and no need for a special card or loyalty membership to get great everyday prices. Whenever possible, Trader Joe’s buys directly from suppliers, and drives a hard bargain to get prices down, which is passed on to customers. They’ve also started packaging great-tasting foods under the “Trader Joe’s” name, which cuts costs and saves money — not just for the company, but for its shoppers too.

Fairway Market: Fairway Market invites shoppers to experience their passion for the best and freshest foods. The store’s selection is varied, and shoppers often find interesting products here that they never knew existed. It’s a staple — and not just to shoppers in the neighborhood. While it’s rarely a challenge to find a place to get groceries in Manhattan, it’s common to find shoppers who have traveled across town to explore the world of food at Fairway Market.

Whole Foods Market NYCWhole Foods Market: Dubbed “America’s Healthiest Grocery Store,” Whole Foods is the place to go for the finest natural and organic foods. Once a one-store-show, the company now boasts nearly 500 stores in North America and the United Kingdom. Their success is driven by their commitment to sustainable agriculture, and maintaining the strictest quality standards, while providing shoppers with a fun, exciting atmosphere.

The Amish Market: A snacker’s paradise, the Amish Market is an ideal spot to pick up light groceries and prepared meals. A salad bar, impressive assortment of olives, and pickles sold by the pound are found here, along with generous sandwiches, hot meals, pizza, and freshly made baked goods.

Dainobu: At Dainobu, you can immerse yourself in Japan’s food culture. With some 3,000 items that range from Japanese sweets to household goods, you’ll find everything you’re looking for (and likely more). Dainobu also offers side dishes and Bento boxes, which are made fresh at the store each morning, and a deli section where you’ll find Donburi, sushi, ramen, and more.

H Mart: Short for “han ah reum,” which means “one arm full of groceries,” H Mart is an Asian-inspired supermarket that began in 1982 in Queens, New York. Today, H Mart stores can be found all over the map, including in Midtown East, and it’s no wonder why they’ve grown. The company’s popularity is fueled by its dedication to meticulously selected offerings, and their desire to make customers feel good about shopping with them.

Ideal Cheese Shop: You probably can guess what this shop’s all about by its name. Dubbed the World’s Best Cheese Shop by, the Ideal Cheese Shop is a place where you can peruse 250 kinds of cheeses from 17 countries — Croatia, Cyprus, Germany, France, and beyond — as well as other specialty products.


There’s a bakery in Midtown East for every kind of sweet tooth. From traditional, old-fashioned treats to unique new age delicacies, the offerings in the neighborhood are as varied in taste as they are in texture and design. The only question is what are you hungry for?
