Any ideas where I can find them in the Hartford area?

  1. Yes, Maple Giant Grinder, but not sure if they make them every day, so please call to check before you venture out. :)

    I've had 'em at Mozzicato's Caffe (next to the bakery) on Franklin Ave., too.

    Let us know how you make out on your arancini quest!

      I had no idea that Maple Giant Grinder had them, Thanks!!

      I am not a huge Mozzicato's...I know I am in the minority.

    2. I haven't been there in a while, but they used to have some good ones at D&D market.

        yea over the holidays we were at d&d and they had them there, you may check difiore also on franklin ave. even further on franklin ave, if youre looking to eat them at a restaurant, they may have them at carbone's.

          Aw, heck, if you head over to DiFiore, please get some nice fresh manicotti...you're in the neighbrhood, after all. Might as well make it totally worth your while. :) I love DiFiore's. Nice ravs, too!

      2. When I was a kid living on Franklin Ave, we used to walk a couple of blocks to the old DePasquale's Bakery and get great arancini there. This was eons ago, when DePasquale's was primarily a bread and Sicilian pizza by the slice bakery, way before Mozzicato's got involved and pastry became their forte. You might want to check out what is now Mozzicato - DePasquale's to see if they still carry them.
