Photo of the Day – May 17, 2010: Mike’s Deli
I’m thinking it’s time for a visit to the Arthur Avenue Retail Market. David Greco, chef and owner of Mike’s Deli inside the market, makes his own fresh mozzarella, and his sandwiches are out of this world. I go on and on about his eggplant parm, but you just have to try it for yourself. David made us this plate of antipasto that was almost too pretty to eat — almost. You can find many Italian delicacies, from unusual pastas and handmade meatballs to seasonal panetone and soft torrone, not to mention handrolled cigars, at this market, which maintains the true spirit of Little Italy in New York City. Yes, it’s definite – I’m taking my mom to the Bronx on Friday. Wanna come with us?
