Looking For A Good, Upscale Food Store In Pensacola

Recommended Posts

Since moving down here I haven't really sought out any yuppie grocery stores, but I'm having a craving for a few things i could get back in Oklahoma. I'm looking specifically for foie gras and duck breast. I don't want the canned or processed foie gras. i used to be able to get it in slices that were frozen and vacuum sealed in plastic. The duck breast (maple farms) came the same way. I'd also like to be able to get my hands on some blood oranges and some other 'non-standard' produce from time to time.

...god, do I sound like a pretentious prick or what! haha. I waited tables at a nice, fine dining restaurant for a few years before getting my commission, so I've been ruined by exposure to really good food.

I don't know if they count as upscale, and I don't know about their selection, but if you are looking for organic foods you could try Ever'man Natural Foods.My link

Organic is really a non-factor. I'm also perfectly happy with the cheap stuff for normal groceries. I can be picky, but I'm not a hippy :-P I just like to cook and replicate a few of the meals I had while working fine dining and often times wal-mart and the commissary don't have everything. The commissary does the best job, there are the couple things mentioned above that I've been craving...specifically the foie gras. That stuff is like wonderful meaty butter on a cracker! haha. Thanks for the link though. I'll give them a ring and see what they have.

Not sure if Everman's is going to carry foie gras. I am sure they will be opposed to the way foie gras is produced. May be Four winds or shoreline might carry the stuff you are looking for.

i think four winds is probably the best bet. Maybe apple market.
