Get a Real Taste of the Old Country at the Italian Food Tour
Leave the office early and take Metro North (17 minutes from Grand Central Station) to Arthur Avenue, aka Little Italy in the Bronx.
Say hi to Peter at Vincent's Meat Market named one of the 10 best butcher shops in New York City. Sample scamorza, parmigiano reggiano and a decadent truffle cheese at Calandra's as well as the housemade mozzarella and ricotta cheese, the best you'll find outside Italy. Take a stroll through the enormous Arthur Avenue Retail Market and sort through the high quality pastas, flours, cookies, and canned tomatoes imported from Italy at Mount Carmel Foods. Look up at the "sausage chandelier" at Calabria Pork Store and sample their house cured pork products.Taste pistachio dipped cannoli at Arthur Avenue Pasticceria. Visit Addeo's bakery for a taste of the addictive "cheegola" bread and Madonia for the white chocolate bread.
After our tasting tour, we'll sit down together for a special pizza dinner at Mario's.
At B’nai B’rith Queens Apartments in Flushing, New York, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
