The International Market in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn has all kinds of awesome meat and fish. People should try pastirma, a type of cured beef. Then, wash it down with kvass, a soda sort of like Coca-Cola made from raisins and bread.

Eugene Mirman is a comedian and hero who lives in Brooklyn, N.Y. He is a regular on “Flight of the Conchords,” Adult Swim’s “Delocated,” had his own special on Comedy Central, and voices Gene in the new animated Fox series “Bob’s Burgers.”
