Where can I get Pagoda Shaoxing rice wine

Not so interested in going to Chinatown and walking around aimlessly and looking for a liquor store. I went to one chinese supermarket but all they had was cooking wine. I did a search on chowhound and the recommendation was to get it from Marks Wine & Spirits on mott between bayard and pell but that seems to be out of business. All other recommendations were either too far (NJ) or only sell cooking wine.

    You don't need to wander aimlessly, but you probably do need to go to Chinatown: Elizabeth St Wine & Liquor, 86 Elizabeth St. They're quite open.

    Surprised to hear that Mark's is closed, though I haven't been there in awhile. Was a good little shop...

    I can't guarantee what brands they have - if they carried Pagoda in particular - but I do recall seeing some Chinese rice wines at Mister Wright on 3rd Ave, on the UES. It's probably cheaper at Elizabeth St, although either way it's not expensive - if you're closer to the UES, maybe give them a look.

      Walked by 5 minutes ago. Mark's is still in business right where it was, at 53 Mott next to Haagen-Dazs. Not sure why Yelp erroneously lists it as closed.

        Already found it in China Town a block from the Canal Street station on Walker Street and Lafayette. It was $6 a bottle but I bought 2 and they took a dollar off.

        Thanks for verifying this.
