Tel: 7 495 209 4643's insider take:

As was the case with GUM, the faded glory of this prerevolutionary food store was dusted off a few years ago and it's now the most beautiful food store in Russia, and perhaps in the world. Locals shop for eggs, for example, amid wood paneling, gilt, marble, and chandeliers. For visitors, there are dozens of vodkas to choose from and gourmet Russian chocolates. In the back of the store, there's a selection of souvenirs—the usual scarves and boxes are pricey, but not ridiculously so, and convenient, since the store is open 24 hours. Look to the bakery section for pastries and very tasty meat, mushroom, or cabbage piroshki.

Open 24/7.
