I don’t think I would have even noticed it, but my friend David Lebovitz pointed it out as we walked past last week. “I love this place.” There is, indeed, something mesmerizing about the way the grapes, bananas, sacks of shallots and plastic sunflowers are artfully arranged in front of the water bottles.
