Rocking the East

By TODD RICHARD  |  June 27, 2007

The spread looks gorgeous and tastes exquisite. The caviar explodes with flavor, and these small fish eggs make an intriguing accompaniment to the larger egg underneath. The total for this trip was $21.50, busting the bank by a buck and a half. Had I shopped on Tuesday, my bill would have come to $19.35, thanks to Medeo offering 10 percent off on Tuesdays. Looks like someone else will have to bring the Stoli. What’s a Russian meal without vodka?

Total $21.50
Beets  $0.95
Caviar $7.75
Apricots $1.46
Dill $1.49
Rye Bread $2.95
Puff Pastry $1.95
Smoked Salmon  $4.95

  •   A BETTER BRUNCH  |  July 19, 2011
    There is no worse fate than the purgatory of Sunday brunch. The scene is almost universally the same: after a night of aggressive drinking and merriment, boozy plans are laid to meet up in the morning for brunch.
  •   A CURE FOR ALL ILLS  |  April 01, 2009
    Gin has a massive public-relations problem, one that is centuries old and showing no signs of waning.
  •   PATRICK, THE POTATO, AND PORK  |  March 04, 2009
    In just a few short days, the life of Saint Patrick will be celebrated the world over with his namesake holiday, Ireland's most visible mark on the global calendar.
  •   AN AUTHENTIC VALENTINE?  |  February 04, 2009
