Wholefoods Problems

Does anyone else find the Arabella Station Wholefoods to be a nightmare?

I have bought rotten produce there, shrimp that turned black within hours of purchase, and unusable pizza dough.

I have gone there to buy basic items such as green beans and chives to find them out of stock.

I have bought roses there that died within 48 hours without ever blooming.

I have waitied 15 minutes to buy a bagel at 10 AM because they only had one register opened despite having at least 30 employees in the store.

I have tried to complain online and there website doesn't even work so this is my only outlet.

I actually drive to Metarie to go to Wholefoods despite living down the street from the one on Magazine because shopping there is a waste of time and money.

Pizza Stone ... Which one?

I have a cast iron pizza stone from Crate and Barrel that is amazing, but I do not think they make them anymore. The key is to preheat the oven with the stone in it for a long time, then remove the hot stone to the top of the oven and makethe pizza on the stone. Make sure to wipe it with olive oil firat to prevent sticking. This gives the bottom of the crust a head start and eliminates the need for added flour. One caution: you will eventually burn yourself, but it's worth it.

Top 5 "Must Eats" in NYC

Sushi Yasuda for $30 per person? I've never gotten out of there for under $100 a person (not including liquor.) That being said it's worth every penny!! If I had one meal left in my life it'd be at Sushi Yasuda.
