At a little hole-in-the-wall Italian shop apparently run by Russians supplying the restaurant industry, you can find what may be your best bet–and the best deal–for cannolis in town, says George.
No, you can’t scarf them on the spot. Some assembly is required. They sell cannoli shells, and pastry bags filled with a delicious ricotta cream.
Shells are 35 cents each–get a box of 40, and one $10 bag of cream will fill them perfectly. After tax, it comes to about $30 for 40 great cannolis.
They also have chocolate covered shells. Try dipping the ends in crushed pistachio, chocolate chips, coconut, cinnamon. Go crazy.
