DeFonte's opening a location in Staten Island (!)

comestible | Nov 2, 201404:16 PM     3

Hi, I live in the area and passed a vacant storefront on Water Street in Stapleton where a sign was placed saying "Coming soon, DeFonte's of Brooklyn." From what I've read of the favorable comments here about DeFonte's, I'm looking forward to this, and hope it is really going to happen. For residents of St. George and Stapleton, the nearest Italian deli is Montalbano's in Rosebank. Plus DeFonte has some rather unique specialties, yes?
