Sharp Provolone

Lettucepray Jul 4, 2008 08:32 PM

I am in search of sliced sharp provolone...having a problem finding it in Manhattan.
Every deli / store says their's is SHARP but it isn't. Too mild.
Any fellow Chowhounds out there have recommendations?

I will travel anywhere in Manhattan.

    Not really a shop or a deli, but they have Provolone Piccante at 'inoteca.

      i also by my provolne by the chunk....way tastier that way..I also think extra sharp is the way to go.

        A few years ago I ordered one of these from Fresh Direct - I found it to be sharper than most:

          Fairway carries it in the deli at both Manhattan locations, I believe.

            How did it go? Were you happy with the sharpness at FD? Or have you found something better?

              I'd recommend trying DiPalo, if the poster hasn't found it yet.
