Snapshot: Chef's Choice Cash & Carry - East Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY

Chef's Choice Cash & Carry
Owner: Pasquale Russo
Opened: 1987
Cooperative: none
Location: 1051 Utica Ave, East Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY
Photographed: May 2019
Today's snapshot is just up the street (two blocks) from yesterday's Green Acre Farms. It seems to be another warehouse style food store, but this one looks like it's specially designed as a restaurant supply store. There's a parking lot just north of the store, and the whole operation looks more like a wholesaler than a retail store to the public (although Chef's Choice is open to the public).
You can also see here what I mean about Utica not being the most pleasant to walk on. As we get to the north, closer to Church Avenue (this time on the far east end of Flatbush), we'll see more walkable neighborhoods.
