Phoenicia Specialty Foods

This is the best imported food store in town, and the dining area is excellent. Plan to stop for a kabob pita wrap or a chicken shawarma sandwich while you're shopping or just get a cappuccino and a French pastry. Most folks think of Phoenicia as a Middle Eastern deli, but in fact, it's more like the United Nations of food stores. Hungarian salami, Bulgarian feta, Georgian wine, Armenian cheese, Syrian olives, Turkish coffee, Croatian chocolate, Scandinavian jams and jellies, Polish bacon and Greek figs are all there on the shelves. Their prices on olive oil, smoked fish, roasted nuts and dried fruits are among the best in town.
