In a perfect world, there would be a Daily Provisions in every neighborhood. So far, the only progress that’s been made on that front is on the Upper West Side - where a new location just opened on Amsterdam. If you haven’t been to the original cafe in Union Square, know that the excitement around Daily Provisions is more than justified (and not just for the crullers). This is an all-day counter-service spot that makes specialty pastries, juicy rotisserie chickens, and simple but excellent sandwiches. The new UWS spot has more room for a sit-down meal than the original, but make sure to come early if you’re set on trying the crullers, and no matter what time of day, get a sandwich (the BEC, the BLT, and the roast beef are our favorites).
