Where to buy salami in Manhattan

Visiting Gotham this week and would like to load up on some good quality, authentic Italian salamis (and, if possible, authentic, regional Spanish chorriso). Looking for Toscano and soppressata in particular, but all are welcomed. Any suggestions? Near the Village?

  1. I ate some incredible salami and ham at Pino's meat market on Sullivan just south of Houston. We went there as part of a food tour and it was the best I had ever eaten! I recommend it highly and you should go just in front to Joe's dairy to have some fresh mozzarella.

    1. A few blocks from one another are two wonderful spots:

      Despana at 408 Broome Street and Di Palo on the corner of Mott and Grand.

        Second erica's suggestions on Despana (tons of Spanish gourmet items, including chorizo!) and DiPalo (a large variety of Italian food, amazing cheese and ham).

        Another place that has homemade cured ham and sauages is Salumria Biellese on 8th Ave @ 29th Street.

        1. re: kobetobiko

          Great list-I'd add Garden of Eden on 14th street and Dean & DeLuca which carries Salumi products from Seattle (Batali Senior). Check out Salumi's website for some really unique salamis that D&D carries. I recommend their mole and finocchiona salamis. Coincidentally, I just had lunch at Grand Central Market. The lachsschinken and black forest ham from Koglin Royal Hams was unbelievable, the former so named because it is so lean and lightly smoked that you'd swear it was lox (lachs) rather than pork loin. The black forest ham screamed for some fried eggs but I didn't have my hot plate with me.

      2. Faicco's on Bleecker St by Cornelia. Try the finocchino, named after fennel, (though my spelling is wrong). Have a riceball while you're there, it's part of the experience!

        1. re: sing me a bar

          Correct spelling: finocchiona. It's a traditional Tuscan specialty.

          1. re: snaporaz

            Legend has it that a thief hid a stolen slami in a fennel patch only to discover the great taste imparted to it therein!

        2. Faicco's--right in the W Vill

          1. Great hot and sweet sopressata at Buon Italia in the Chelsea Market on 16th and 9th.

              Thank you for the suggestions. Sounds like I am headed to Faicco`s first and then the others. Please let me know about any others.
