Event Details

The Belmont section of the Bronx, also known as Little Italy or simply “Arthur Avenue”, is one of New York's last enclaves of truly, family-run food shops. On this European style food tour we visit nearly a dozen Italian food shops, most of which have been in business for over 100 years.

  • The tour begins in front of the famous Arthur Avenue Retail Market where we explore the many stalls inside and make a special stop to see what foods have just arrived from Italy at Mount Carmel Foods.
  • Next we’ll head next store to Calabria Pork Store where the entire ceiling is covered with their homemade sausages.
  • Diego at Calandra’s Cheese Shop will give us samples of his housemade ricotta.
  • Then we’ll stop by Madonia Bakery for a taste of their singular white chocolate bread.
  • We’ll say hi to Carmela at Egidio Pastry Shoand watch fresh pasta being made at Borgatti Ravioli
  • Visit Joe’s Deli for a sample of their hand-pulled mozzarella.
  • Finally, we’ll look in the windows of Vincent’s Meat Market and Biancardi’s, find out why NYC chefs get their Italian food supplies at Teitel Brothers and wrap up with one last taste at Addeo Bakers.

Start time: 11am in front of 2344 Arthur Avenue, Arthur Avenue Retail Market.

Duration: 2 hour walking tour

Tastings: Over the course of 2 hours you'll taste pastry, bread, cheese and salume, equivalent to a small lunch. Vegetarians can be accomodated, but vegans or gluten-free guests may not be able to enjoy the full scope of our tastings.

FAQs

 

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Take Metro North's Harlem line from Grand Central Station to the Fordham Station. We strongly recommend this mode of public transportation over the subway. It's just 17 minutes from midtown Manhattan followed by a 10 minute walk to our meeting place, 2344 Arthur Avenue.
