Any suggestions where to find best selection and value? Boston metro area is best, thanks in advance!

    i can't swear to this, but I would guess the Russian stores like Brezka, Baza and Bazaar would be your best bet.

      Other places where i've seen caviar are Savenors on Charles Street, Formaggio, Whole Foods, Sakanaya and Ebusiya (for salmon), and even Trader Joes!

        Whole Foods seems to carry it.... we have a local caviar place, Little Pearl, if I recall correctly.. I think that's what they carry.

          true, Little Pearl, and they carry fresh bellini and craime fraiche (nod to South Park) right next to 'em. I've also seen Ostrega at Costco: an ounce I think. I forget the price, but around $40 sounds like what I remember.

            Little Pearl sadly closed a year or two ago after the founder passed away.

            Thanks, everybody. FWIW I looked up Little Pearl but according to Yelp it is closed. So, I went to Bazaar in Brookline. Ossetra was ~$65/oz, a fair price. I haven't sampled yet. They also have a variety of Salmon cavair and a plethora of other great looking goodies.

            Happy New Year to all posters!
