What you'll do

We're going to immerse ourselves in New York Italian food and culture along Arthur Avenue, which many claim is the most intact Little Italy in New York. Hopping from cheese shop to deli to bakery to public market, we'll see how the locals shop and how they eat. After a little history and context about the neighborhood of Belmont and its Italian heritage, we'll get right to the food. I'll introduce you to the food artisans who have been baking bread, curing salami, stuffing cannoli, and making fresh pasta, many for close to a century. Indulge all of your senses on this interactive and delicious food journey in the neighborhood that inspired the the film and Broadway musical A Bronx Tale. And if you're still hungry after this whirlwind feast, I'm happy to give you recommendations for which restaurant to go to for a hearty Italian meal paired with a nice Chianti. Or I can help you find your way to nearby Bronx Zoo or the New York Botanical Gardens.

Brian

I am an actor, tour guide, and food blogger. On my blog and video series (eatthisny.com), I search for the best and most iconic foods in NYC and that includes the city's wonderful Italian food. When I first discovered the Little Italy of the Bronx along Arthur Avenue, I thought I had struck gold. Having worked in many of the city's best restaurants, I know this is where many of the restaurants get their supplies and ingredients. I have spent many months up here exploring, eating, and meeting the people who make this neighborhood so rich and delicious.

What's included

Where you'll be

We'll start at the historic Arthur Avenue Market which (along with the nearby church) is the center of the community. From there, we'll head up and down Arthur Avenue (and the surrounding streets) to a number of specialty food shops to see where the locals go. We'll sample both imported and freshly made Italian cheeses, house-aged salami, shucked oysters, breads baked moments ago, freshly filled cannolis, and much more.
