  1. Fairway

    Pickles and Olives - on First Ave./86th St.


    123 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10016

    1. +1 for Fairway and Kalustyan's. Zabar's is another great option.

      123 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10016

      2245 Broadway, New York, NY 10024

      1. Pickles & Olives on 1st Avenue between 85th and 86th. It's owned by Turks, known for their olives. Great stuff.

          Turkey is surely known for its olives, but the ones I bought here were tired and old. Fairway (if you like them in oil) and Zabars (which retains the brine). Sahadi in Brooklyn has good quality, great buys, and lots of turnover.
