Arthur Ave. Taste Test..I need your input!

drbyyz | Aug 14, 2011 12:04 PM

My wife and I have been to Arthur Ave. in the Bronx on several occasions and tried a ton of stuff there, but as we are moving away in a year, we want to make sure we haven't missed anything good there. So, I'm looking for the best of Arthur Ave. I know there are threads like this already, but I have a few specifics that I'm looking for as well hidden secrets that we might not have even thought about. Also, we aren't looking for sit down restaurant stuff. This is stuff we are going to go buy and then bring home to eat.

So below are my catagories for best of. I've listed our favorites in each category, but you don't need to stick to those. And as a final note, to make this the most useful, give responses as a particular item at a particular store (ex. for bread, "some specific loaf at some specific bakery")

Cheese
-Mozzarella

Sausage
-Sopressata
-Prosciutto

Bread

Sweets
-Cannoli
-Cookies or small sweets
-Locally made candy

Olives

Any other specialty items (ex. some place has a really awesome herb mix or something...basically anything goes here)

Ok, so thanks in advance for any input and knowledge that you guys have!! And remember, you don't have to stick to the exact stuff I requested, I will be super happy to find stuff I didn't even think of!
