for the last year my gf has been obsessed with some good italian/sicilian-style rice balls. we had them *once* at a family-owned specialty market in cambridge, mass but haven't been able to find them anywhere else since then. so, i was hoping for recommendations on where to find some either in manhattan or in the outer boroughs.
in a previous post from a couple of years ago, recommendations included la focaccia in e.village, ferdinando in brooklyn, and dino's in cliffside park, nj. so:
1) are these places still good and
2) are there any other places worth checking out?
