Suprema Provisions Is Essentially a Teeny-Tiny Eataly

It's long been challenging for restaurants, as opposed to clothing stores, to survive on Bleecker Street, but perhaps because newly opened Suprema Provisions has a retail component, it'll fare better than August, Manatus, and Café Angelique. One-third of Suprema Provisions is a gourmet market, with cookbooks, fancy kitchen tools, and imported Italian ingredients; another third is a salumeria, with cheese and cured meats available to go; and there's also a wine bar, complete with Italian-leaning snacks that could very well constitute a full-on meal.

There's talent behind this project: Entrepreneur Stephen Werther, who's leading the charge on the Bourdain Market, has partnered with sommelier Joshua Wesson. Take a look:
