Who has the best hot sopressata in Manhattan?

The best I've ever had was from a deli on Arthur Ave who's name I don't recall. Unfortunately, I won't have time to make a trip to the Bronx. I've also had one from Esposito's on 9th Ave which was very good. Any recommendations?

      That's where I'd go, though counter service can be annoying there. I've walked out after being ignored for what I felt was an unreasonable amount of time.

        I can stand to wait an unreasonable amount of time if the place is busy, but I cannot understand when any place doesn't at least offer you eye contact and acknowledge your existence and tell you they will be with you as soon as possible......this obviously is not applicable to places that hand out numbered tickets of course.

        I'm with you on walking out if ever ignored.

        I was reading about this place recently. I wish they had a better web site and shipped.

          What's even worse is they make this stuff less than 10 minutes away from my home a couple of towns over and do not have a retail store. Although the roots are all Manhattan, a couple of years ago they relocated the manufacturing of the products to Hackensack, NJ.

          The reason given why they do not have a retail store at the warehouse....too many restaurants in NYC and they cannot keep up with the demand.

              I like Emily's on Graham Ave Williamsburg. Not in Manhattam but very good.
