Arthur Avenue is located just a few short blocks from the Metro-North train stop at Fordham University. Now that I know where it is, I can easily return via car or public transportation (a mere 30-minute trip from the Chuckwagon). After seeing the vast dining options available to the Italian food enthusiast, I'll need many, many visits to try it all.
Borgatti's Pasta Shop, churning out noodles since 1935
Owner Chris Borgatti (son of the founder) was kind enough to give us his family story
Teitel Bros. Italian Grocery - Since 1915
The famous "sausage chandelier" at Calabria Pork Store (they make a mean Italian combo sandwich)
I brought home a traditional Italian loaf and a raisin/fennel bread from Madonia Bakery (sadly, they were out of the coveted cicola, or pork lard, bread)
