This makes me very grumpy. My local source for Eastern European goodies, cheese, and sausage has closed. Zolotoy Petushok, a Russian deli out in the hinterlands of W. 11th (in the mini-mall next to the KFC), was a sweet, friendly, unpretentious little place that sold jams, spices, teas, and tchotchkes along with hot meals: little mushroom dumplings, stuffed cabbage, or a steaming bowl of fish goulash. This little deli, like the dearly departed Pomegranates Middle Eastern Market, was alone in its kind. I bought my farmer’s cheese there. I remember reading somewhere that the store had changed owners recently; I guess they quickly realized it wasn’t a profitable location.
