Most Alliterative-Friendly Shopping i.e. Best for Borscht, Babushkas, Bialys
Brighton Beach is home to Brighton Bazaar, the city’s best Russian market. The neighborhood also boasts numerous cafes and delis, most scattered along Brighton Beach Avenue, peddling meaty starches, root vegetable-based soups, and, yes, borscht. Where else are you going to find khachapuris (a Georgian baguette with cheese) and shotis puris (without cheese)? Not to mention vatrushki danishes, potato dumplings, poppy-seed rolls, and rugelach. The best news is that you’re basically culturally obligated to chase it all with vodka. Go hungry.
