I was pleased to see a short story run about Avventura Deli in the Sunday NY Times.
Avventura has been one of my go to delis when I'm in the area (also Gaetano's in Stratford and Chaves in Bridgeport). Avventura uses high quality ingredients and they make everything fresh. Also a very nice old school Town Plot Italian neighborhood vibe, people are very friendly and laid back there.
I stick to the grinders. I've never tried the baked goods, though I've heard good things.
