Best Italian Heros in Manhattan

guttergourmet | Jul 5, 200608:01 PM     6

The Message Board police get mad at me if I include places in the outer boroughs (forgive me Leo's/Mama's) so without further ado I would put #1 Italian Food Center on Grand. #2 Alidoro FKA Melampo on Sullivan. #3 Faicco's on Bleecker. #4 Parisi on Mott. My preferred combo: proscuitto di parma, sweet soppressatta, Italian fontina, hot and sweet peppers on a semolina bread. Despana makes some wicked Spanish bocadillas though. And don't even get me started on banh mi places.
