Biz Ideas for Foodie Trust Fund Babies

I have fetishes for a few things, obviously, but New York City isn't one of them. It's a wonderful place for a visit to see some jazz and a great play over a weekend, but I'll never wish I lived there. I do however keep a running mental list of ideas that I wish Chicago would import:

24-hour cheap French bistros like French Roast (this, I lament regularly)
Asian tapas
Japanese pastry shops (to be fair, I think there's only one in NYC)
Zabar's grocery store
Produce markets in the neighborhoods (we need more, Mr. Daley)

The pizza and bagels leave me indifferent. Shoot me. But the above? Oh yes, yes, please.
