Torrisi Italian Specialties

Cpalms | Jan 2, 2010 07:08 PM

I have to admit the idea of this place was certainly intriguing to me - classically trained chefs making italian american specialties using only domesticly sourced ingredients - Love the idea!!

Anyway, To start the Chicken Parm Sandwich is the best in Manhattan, bar none. Organic chicken, house made mozz, perfect tang to the sauce, Parisi bakery bread - beautiful, just beautiful. Also sampled the Italian cold cut hero which is right up there ( better than Mikes, Dafonte's, similiar to Fiacco's) and also had the potato and pepperoni salad (I don't remember this stuff from when I was a kid) which was so simple and so so good!

Get there before it's a mad house, I worry how they are going to handle the traffic...
