Not that many chowhounds know about this place. It has been serving the Willamsburg,Bushwick, Ridgewood , Maspeth and MiddleVillge areas for over 75 years.Asaro will be closing at the end of MAY .(a sad day) It is located on Jefferson and Irving Ave. Any Italian American who grew up in this area will tell that it is the best place to get great cheeses and olive oil. At the right price. #2 liter tin of extra virgin olive oil 21 dollars . He imports it and cans it. Plus reggiano at 10.99 a pound. Were else in this great city are you getting these prices. This is one of the last real mon and pop shops. I wish him well and lot's of luck on his retirement. Truly one of the nice guys I have ever came across.
