Fodor's Review

Of all the stores and boutiques on ulitsa Tverskaya, this grocery store at No. 14, in a Matvei Kazakov–designed, late-18th-century classical mansion, has the most dazzling interior, with chandeliers, stained glass, and gilt wall decorations. Under Communist administration, the store had the official, generic title Gastronom No. 1, but it once again carries the name that most people continued to call it even then—Yeliseyevsky's, after the rich merchant from St. Petersburg who owned the store before the revolution. The large alcohol and souvenir section in the back room includes a number of top-shelf and specialty vodkas. Coffee beans, caviar, and candy, as well as a standard array of fresh foods, are for sale here as well. One of the few grocery stores in the city center, and open 24 hours, it's a good place to stock up on snacks and drinks.
