Gustiamo Warehouse Holiday Party

erica | Nov 25, 201806:01 AM     2

After years of putting off the drive to the Bronx, I finally made it to the Gustiamo warehouse yesterday, for their annual holiday pizza party. For those interested in the creme de la creme of Italian foodstuffs, this place is a must. (The pizza, made on the spot by New Jersey's Jimmy Coponi, was pretty great as well).

This is not a place for bargain shopping but, rather a curated selection of the best of the best, at prices that compared favorably to those I found last month in Rome. From Tuscany, pine nuts and Martelli pasta in all of their shapes, difficiult to find elsewhere; new olive oil from Molise with more new oils to come; jams from Corrado Assunza in Noto, Taggiasca olives, capers from Pantelleria, jarred tomatoes packed without citric acid from a farm in Cilento including the tiny yellow pomodorini that I tried so hard, and failed, to find in Rome. And those are just a few of the items that I bought. While shopping, I spied the owner of a well-regarded Italian food store doing his own business. I tried to post some photos and ended up losing the entire thread, so will not attempt that again! The warehouse is open to the public (minus the pizza) on Friday afternoons by advance appointment.

Added plus, there is a brand new ShopRite not far from here, on Bruckner Blvd.
