I am looking to order sandwiches for a party in the LES and my revelers want Italian sammiches: tom, moz and basil and proscuitto with peppers and fontina. Any suggestions where I can get some? Thanks.Dr. Faustus
manganaros, bruno king of ravioli, todaro bros
salumeria rossi on the west side.
Bruno Ravioli has good sandwiches, does catering and is a decent shop for delicious accessories...
LES Sandwicherie has been absorbed by Kuta House, but they might be a good choice (check the lunch menu). Not strictly Italian, though.
I found my source for Italian sandwiches, Alleva 118 Grand. The oldest Italian cheese shop in America established in 1892. great moz and tom on semolina!
Oh good. I was pretty sure that DiPalo makes sandwiches, but maybe they don't do large numbers of them/catering?
Hi Dr Faustus,
A slightly off-topic question. Who has better mozzarella, Di Palo's or Alleva? I always get my mozzarella from Di Palo but someone brought up Alleva lately and I am intrigued!
Thanks in advance!
Can we add Joe's on Sullivan Street to the discussion of whose mozzarella is best? I've not tried Alleva for mozzarella, but I think DiPalo and Joe's are both terrific..
DiPalo's is superior to Joe's. I usually make my own but I have had both multiple times and it isn't even close, unfortunately.
I bought some mozzarella from Di Palo's and from Alleva and my patients preferrred Alleva's. I thought they were both good. I went with Alleva because they make sandwiches.
I'd call DiPalo and see what they can do for you.
Thanks for your reply. They were the first place I called and they don't do sandwiches. They recommended the Italian Food Center. It's closed by the Board of Health.
