Food, Food & more Italian Food!

Food in the Bronx is reflective of the characteristics that make this borough unique: it’s got one foot rooted in “the old country” and one foot in the new, bridging the gap with a passion for tradition. Many cultures are represented throughout the Bronx, but Arthur Avenue continues to be predominantly Italian American just as it was during the early 20th century when the streets were lined with vendors selling their goods from wooden carts.
Many of the storefronts lining Arthur Avenue are the same as they were when they first opened. And though many of the original owners are no longer operating their stores, their businesses, recipes and traditional methods have been passed down to either family members or hand-picked individuals they’ve entrusted to carry on their legacies.
The Bronx’s Arthur Avenue is another “Little Italy” in New York, but so far, it has been untouched by mainstream tourism. With robust flavors of Italian-American staples like fresh mozzarella, soppressata sausage, red sauce and award-winning cannoli, it’s impossible for it to remain a secret for much longer.
Please sign up early so we can try to get some carpools together.
Please let me know if you are willing to take a few people in your car since there is limited parking in the area.
