For total immersion into Russian food culture, head to Net Cost Market, which was previously known as Gourmanoff - everything is the exact same post-renovation except for the name on the sign. The market is housed in an old movie theater, and the entrance still bears the telltale ticket booth and red velvet ropes. If you’re the kind of person who likes to peruse offal at the butcher’s counter or select from one of 50 kinds of butter, this is the place for you. Net Cost boasts an impressive beer aisle, a massive hot bar where you can find everything from blood sausage to borscht, and a bakery that specializes in dark, seedy loaves.
