Camille's Italian Specialties Coming Soon- McDonald Avenue and Avenue P

On McDonald Avenue and Avenue P, under the el, in the space that used to be a bagel store, will soon be home to a new store, Camille's Italian Specialties, according to a sign in the window.

I think that the area around Dahill Road/65 Street/McDonald Avenue could use this store. While that area seems to now mostly be Syrian/Sephardic and Orthodox Jews, I thnk that we could always use new salumerie in Brooklyn. It is an encouraging sign to me that stores like this are still going.

I wish them the best of luck, and will be posting more information as it becomes available.

NB: I have no relation or vested interest to the parties involved, so when they do open, my reviews of their items will be unbiased.

  1. According to a message I was just sent by a regular from Monte's Deli on Avenue O--which just closed--Camille's is the reincarnation of Monte's! They've also added pizza and bagels to the old menu, and this guy says the food is as good as ever. I will make a point to visit in the next few weeks, but has anyone else gone yet?
