Arthur Avenue

I'll be going in a few weeks for Saturday lunch and to experience the stores with no particular purchases in mind.
Any recommendations will be appreciated.

  1. Dominick's for lunch. Be sure to try their meatballs.

    1. Casa della mozzerella on 187th just off Arthur ave is a must. The fresh Mozz is among the best I've had, and I've had a LOT.
      Also, the Arthur Ave retail market is a great stop. Several stores, restaurants and gift shops all in one indoor marketplace.

      1. Thanks...
        Still looking for more ideas.

        1. It's hard to go wrong on Arthur Avenue. We go to Biancardi's for meat, and fabulous Italian sausages; either Casa Della Mozzarella or the place at the end of Arthur Avenue for ricotta; the pasta shop is on 246th Street, perpendicular to Arthur Avenue; Teitel Brothers on the corner of Arthur Avenue, which has all sorts of oils, dry goods, cheeses and meats, Calabria Pork store for all kinds of dried sausages. Just wander down Arthur Avenue and across the side streets. Poking your nose in and out of the stores is really the way to enjoy the street!

            I misstated the location of the pasta shop! it's 187th Street. Sorry if this caused any confusion.
