Best Gourmet Market: West Point Market

Beautifully designed and dramatically lit, this 28,000-square-foot gourmet treasure trove includes a 3,000-label wine shop, custom-cut meats, more than 300 types of cheeses, an in-house bakery (don't miss the "killer brownies"), a chocolate shop, a flower shop, a collection of fine china and kitchen wares, its own upscale café, and a proper British tearoom. The result is a market where shopping finally moves beyond mere entertainment and actually approaches art.
