Best Soppresatta

After years of trying soppresatta (a dried Italian sausage for non-foodies) in the Five Boroughs, New Jersey, Chicago and (gasp) Miami, I can honestly say that the best I ever had is from Piazza Mercato, a recently opened Italian Gourmet market on 3rd Avenue, between 93rd and 92nd Street (next to Starbucks), in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Owned by the Generoso family of Royal Crown Bakery and Paneantico fame, they make it fresh everyday, along with a full line meat products (so far, I have only tried their sausages). Although much of their product line is pricey, the Soppresatta is comparable to other markets I've been to in Brooklyn and the Bronx, but leaves all competition in the dust. Try to get their by any means possible, as the trip is worth it!
