Real Delis in Bergen County - are they a dying breed?
I have fond memories of the Waldwick deli, and would be interested to know what good delis there are left in Bergen County - German, Italian, Jewish, Polish, anything! Would especially be interested in Italian delis that offer fresh pasta, gnocchi, or cavatelli. Thanks in advance.
You are going to receive a lot of recommendations for Vitamia in Lodi, especially for their pasta products, but while it is an Italian deli that provides nice products and services, I would tell you they are very expensive as well for what is provided. I would also include Bartolomeo and Jerry's, both in Englewood in the same camp. There's a place in Waldwick called Itallian Riviera that gets love on this board, but I have not been to the location.
Here's a list of very good to great delis in addtion to the ones mentioned above, IMHO:
Visentini Bros., Lodi
Clememte, South Hackensack
Piccolo Gastronomia Italiana, Ridgefield
Golden Eagle, Garfield
Super Deli, Wallington
Foster Village Delicatessen
Sol 'n' Sol, Englewood
Kosher Nosh, Glen Rock
Harold's II Kosher Superrette, Paramus
Picnic Caterers, Emerson
Cafasso's Fairway Market, Fort Lee
There's a couple of places in Closter that some have mentioned on this site. One I believe is Isabella's, the other, the name escapes me at the moment. There's two in Northvale/Norwood, but I was not impressed with either. These will get you started for now. If I can think of others or remember the names of the ones I missed, I'll report back.
