The flagship store of the nineteenth century gourmet merchandiser and importer Grigory Yeliseevsky is now home to a wonderful shop. The grand interior has been restored to its pre-revolutionary glamour with gold bolsters, mirrors and sculptured mouldings. The ceilings are as high as at theatre. Stocked here at reasonable prices are a variety of imported chocolates, biscuits and other foodie gifts and there are also well-stocked seafood and cheese deli counters. There’s a wine room filled with wines from around the world and champers as well as a souvenirs room in the back. The atmosphere is improved by such historic surroundings and the staff don’t follow you around like you’re about to pocket something.
