Settled by Italian immigrants in the early 19th century, they set about creating a small village of shops and services that were familiar to them in Italy. Today, Arthur Avenue features high-quality butcher shops, cheese makers, seafood markets, bakeries, pasta stores, restaurants, and produce markets. Generations of Italians still live, work, and shop in this vital neighborhood. On this food tour, you’ll sample the neighborhoods best bites: olive bread, prosciutto bread, the best mozzarella knots this side of Italy, clams, cured meats, and fresh-filled cannolis. Leave with a full stomach and feeling truly authentically Italian. There is no better way to spend a Saturday morning!
Note: The meeting location will be at Terranova Bakery, located at 691 E 187th St (between Cambreleng & Beaumont Avenue).
