Where we've featured it
If you’re someone who makes do with Fairway by going all Professor Snape on the spice aisle, then Kalustyan’s will be your new favorite market in Manhattan. This specialty grocery store near Madison Square Park sells a massive array of Indian and Middle Eastern herbs and spices. Their selection is so deep in categories ranging from breads and sauces, to desserts and teas, that exploring any one in particular feels like the real-life version of an infinite scroll.
Kalustyan’s is where you go to let your culinary freak flag fly. Did you need some curry powder? Would twenty different kinds suffice? Though it’s primarily a market, we’d be real jerks for not mentioning the café upstairs. An octogenarian (look, we found another old person in Murray Hill!) will probably make your meal but know that on the other end of it is all kinds of Mediterranean goodness.
