I recently moved here from Denver, where a few Russian-owned 'European delis' kept me well-fed with Ruskie delicacies like smoked fish, tongue, eggplant salads, etc. Since all of these were imported from New York, I was thinking that I'd find a utopia of such delis here. No such luck; I haven't found any yet. I know there are tons in Brighton Beach, but I live in W Harlem, and don't want to schlep all the way there every time I get a hankering for some Russian chocolates.
So: can anyone help me out by posting Russian/East European delis/stores/markets that would feed my cravings and be close to me or at least to the AC/BD/19 lines?
Thanks in advance!
