Russian food in immigration - an overview of stores in New York

New York is a huge cosmopolitan metropolis, mixing people from all over the world. New York has it all. Stores selling Russian and Eastern European products are no exception.

Russian stores have their loyal fans and ardent opponents. Some people believe that Eastern European—so-called “our”—products are of better quality than American, often genetically modified, analogues. Some people, on the contrary, believe that Russian stores can only offer terrible service and “Soviet” rudeness, and everything you need for good nutrition can be bought in regular supermarkets. One way or another, we all go to Russian stores from time to time to buy products we know from childhood and our favorite delicacies.

The editorial board of the Forum prepared a list of Russian stores located in New York with addresses and opening times.

The advantages and disadvantages of each store, as well as the ratings are based on editorial opinions, votes and readers' comments (we got the 41 answer) and customer reviews on and google.maps.

The overall estimate is derived as the arithmetic average of the three presented.
