Arthur Ave. Eats

  • j

Need some advice. I've never been to this part of the Bronx and would like to check out the area.
Looking for Italian with an emphasis on seafood.
Any suggestions ?

      I'm a little late getting in on this discussion therefore my apologies to all!

      I love Emilio's shrimp w/light pesto sauce. You can find this delightful restaurant directly across "da' Ave." from the Arthur Ave. entrance to the market. Family owned and family supervised, never had a bad meal there or, for a matter of fact, anywhere in that wonderful "old world" section of town.

      Hi, John!
      Let us know how your outing goes. I made my first visit to Arthur Ave about 6 mos. ago. We had great time at Dominick's (it was early on Sunday, and the wait wasn't bad, and I LIKED the food), but I've heard better things about Roberto's. Would like to go back.
