Italian Rice Balls- Arancini

I am looking to get about 20 italian rice balls for a party in westchester (I live in Larchmont). Can anyone recommend a place that I can get them from (local restaurant or deli). I heard that Trader Joe sells them, but reviews said that they are not that good.
Also I am looking to get some Chinese food catered- any ideas on locations in Westchester?

      What is so good about Lum Yen question mark. I've never been, but their menu looks like way overpriced neighborhood take-out...

        1. re: moron66

          Based on their menu I would not try it, which is why I asked you what is so good about it--you wrote a statement that it is the best in Westchester is customary in posting such a statement on chowhound, please follow up with specifically why it is so good. Thank you.

    2. The arancini from Arrosto in Port Chester are amazing!!!! We usually get multiple orders when we eat there! I would imagine they'd be happy to do a take out order for you.

        I would have to agree... Arrosto's arancini are very good.. I make them myself and I really liked theirs!

      2. Dante's Deli on Central Ave has really good rice balls also on Central Ave further south in Yonkers A & S Pork Store has really good rice balls both are large and filled with meat.

          Gbeats! thank you so much! I will call them to find out if they can do a large order for me!

            I second the A&S Pork Store in Yonkers

              Dante's is fabulous. The prepared food is superb, and the butcher counter is outstanding too.

            2. Try the Mona Lisa Deli on 22 in Scarsdale/Eastchester. Their food is amazing and the cook- she is an angel.

              1. Pane e Gelato in Eastchester has great Arancini - they also have authentic italian Gelato! But, I must add, the best Arancini I ever had was on a ferry boat from Villa San Giovanni in Calabria on my way to Messina Italy!!! Pane e Gelato was very close!!!!!
