GET TO KNOW LITTLE ITALY IN THE BRONX
Little Italy in the Bronx is like a time capsule of Italian foods, with many dishes and delicacies that can no longer be found in Italy. Settled by Italian immigrants who came to the Bronx to build the New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo, this is New York's largest remaining Little Italy.
A 2-HOUR ARTHUR AVENUE WALKING FOOD TOUR INCLUDES SAMPLES OF CHEESE, PASTRY AND CHARCUTERIE AT NEARLY A DOZEN FOOD SHOPS FOLLOWED BY A SIT DOWN LUNCH AT ONE OF OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANTS.
- 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.
Other stops include:
- Borgatti Ravioli
- Casa della Mozzarella

- The tour concludes with a sit-down lunch at Mario's where we'll have their absolutely amazing pizza margherita.
