    Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, New York

    In the 1970s, Russians and Ukrainians started settling in this 19th century resort town. Today, Brighton Beach is home to the largest Russian-speaking immigrant community in the country, with more than half of the residents over 5 years old speaking Russian at home. This ethnic enclave seems miles (and often years) away from modern Manhattan. M&I International Foods is a two-story ethnic food emporium, with an astounding variety of fresh and imported products. I happen to love the diversity of the smoked fish and salted salmon roe offerings and the cold cuts. With all the focus on European cured meats, I dare you to try the Russian salami with hot mustard and tell me its not as sophisticated as its Italian cousins. For dinner, you can’t pass up Café Glechik’s famed stew made of short ribs and potato dumplings. Or for a more unusual spot, Café “At Your Mother-in-Law” serves a mixture of Eastern European, Korean and Uzbek cuisines in the heart of Little Odessa.
