Where can I buy mayonnaise in a tube in Manhattan?

I always bought this one every time I was in Europe, but I ran out and finding a place that sells Lesieur in Manhattan would greatly help. Either that or another brand that's similar. http://www.mondizen.com/en/sauces/113...

Do you know where I can get it?

Thank you so much.

    Believe it or not, japanese mayo tastes very similar to French mayo. You should give that a try and can be found in any asian market. I believe the brand is called kewpie.

      Lesieur is actually owned by a company called CPC International, which also owns Hellman's... make of that what you will.

      That aside, if it's just the being-in-a-tube you're looking for, there are many brands. Scandinavians are particularly into tubed mayo for some reason. I only know of one Scandi specialty shop though, and they're out in Bay Ridge.

        Lesieur is made with sunflower oil, very low in vitamin K & therefore a boon to anyone on coumadin & testing high in clotting factor. (Hellman's is made with soybean oil, rich in K.) So pls add me to the list of people eager to find Lesieur or any other good sunflower or safflower mayo.

            I know that this is not in Manhattan, but there is a place Called Green Parrot on Queens Blvd in Sunnyside that has this product. This is actually a kind of cool Balkan sotore with lots of good products. It is next to the 46th street stop on the seven train. maybe 20 minutes from grand Central.
