Arthur Avenue Review

gardengirl | Mar 7, 200705:15 AM     15

I felt inclined to post about Arthur Avenue (Little Italy in the Bronx) because I went a few weeks ago - I try to make a visit every month - and I am still enjoying everything I brought back with me. I was reminded to post (meant to do so a while back) because I just defrosted the dough I bought from Madonia Bakery. Trying to decide what kind of pizza I'm going to make tonight.

Here is a list of must stops and highlights for me. I'd love to hear what you pick up when you go to Arthur Ave. I am always looking for new treats.

Biancardi's - the meat here is high quality and so much less expensive then where I live (midtown Manhattan). I load up on a month's worth and stuff it in the freezer.

Madonia - pizza dough and either olive bread or one of the rounds in the window.

Casa della Mozzarella - the mozzi is by far the best I have had, I think ever. I prefer the medium salted ball, my husband likes the knots. Also get grated parm here.

AA Market: the spicy pepper spread at the counter on the far left by Cafe Mercado and the green olives across from Mike's deli.

Borgatti's - just had their ravioli which were like little pillows, the dough was so soft and the cheese had the perfect amount of bite. Also love their cavatelli and fresh cut spaghetti

Full Moon Pizza - favorite slice in the city

Teitel Brothers - for staples like olive oil, cheapest on the strip

DeLillo - love their cappuccino and cannoli
