Sharp Provolone

  • 7

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.

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

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

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

          thanks...never thought of FreshDirect
          Will give them a try

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

          1. 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.
