Welcome to … Red Hook???

We were hungry tonight before the jam at Sunny’s, so we went next door to the Fairway.

Oh. My. God.

I have never before had to ask directions to get out of a grocery store.

I was scolded by a manager for taking this photo. (I should have taken a photo of him!) Easy to understand why they’re touchy about it; 14 ounces of fish eggs cost more than most of the neighborhood pays every month in rent. Ugh.

  2. I’ve never seen a 4-digit price in a grocery store in my life.

    I could see a bunch of gourmands splurging $300 on this rare delicacy for a special celebration. The crass commercialization of actually posting the price of a greater quantity than anybody needs is offensive, and the fact that someone with no taste and too much money will pay it just to show off his wealth is disgusting. Yo, go blow your wads on coke and Kristal.

      My feeling is that if an animal is rare enough that its eggs cost hundreds or thousands of dollars, it’s probably rare enough that trade in said animal should be banned.

    I sure hope so, but I don’t really know. Never got an email from you, by the way?

    Egads–refinancing of mortgages might be necessary for some folks to shop in such a store.

    If gentrified individuals insist on lavishing their money in this fashion, they should be required to have the store within their very own neighborhood so they could also experience the traffic that comes with a supermarket’s local presence.
