Pistachio Brittle?

Alan Divack Aug 11, 1999 08:44 PM

There was an excellent article in today's WSJ about
ideological conflicts between clerics in Qom, Iran's
theological center. Intruiguingly, the author noted
that Qom is a drearly place, relieved only by the smell
of pistachio brittle.

Does anyone know of a source for this delicacy in NY?
I am a complete pistachio fanatic, and this mention
obliterated much of the other details of the disputes
between the "Youns" and the "Yats."

    If I were on a quest for Pistachio Brittle, I would
    start at the couple of arab-flavored bodegas on
    Atlantic Ave near Court street. Any place where they
    have 4 kinds of homemade Halvah sounds like a promising
    beginning of the quest. Good luck and let us know.
