Benz's Gourmet

New York
Gourmet Shop

This speciality fish store caters predominately to Crown Heights' Orthodox Jewish community. Its 100% kosher grocery inventory is stocked with herring, canned tuna, and the house speciality: gefilte fish. While you'll notice an influx of customers right before the Sabbath and high holidays, Benz's imported cheese and olives, plus kosher microbrews, draw locals all days of the week.
