Grove East Provisions is a charming little south side bodega
Inspired by the neighborhood markets he found every place he visited in Europe, guitarist-turned-shop-owner Barry Kinder brings the idea closer to home with his market-cafe Grove East Provisions. Bread is cooked on-site by Red Fox Baking -- one of the city's best -- and comfort foods such as meatloaf and BLTs abound. Save room for the chicken-noodle soup; it's destined to become Grove East's signature dish. Photos by Jennifer Silverberg
