A Spoonful of Sofrito: A pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.

Best Italian Hero on Arthur Avenue is a DIY Sandwich Hack!


Sofrito Lovers,

I'm truly blessed to live so close to the amazing 'hood called, Bronx's Little Italy!  With delicious fare, incredible shopping, and fresh produce, Bronx's Little Italy is a foodie paradise!  That's why when I came across the article posted below,on Seriouseats.com, I knew I had to re-post and share it with my blog familia.

The Best Italian Hero on Arthur Avenue isn't found in Arthur Ave (Bronx Little Italy's main street) it's created from the incredible products found throughout the neighborhood.  Check out the post below, then make your way up to the Bronx for a foodie adventure you soon won't forget.  

After the reading the super simple DIY instructions, I plan on assembling this delicious sounding hero this week!  I hope you join me in the adventure!  Go taste for yourself!  Buon Appetito!

Let it be our secret: the best sandwich on Arthur Avenue can't be found in any deli. It's one you make yourself with great ingredients from all over the neighborhood.

This is a simple Italian hero, heavy on the meat and cheese, one that forgoes nonsense like lettuce. You can make it on a bench with minimal mess, and it perfectly captures the slowly disappearing essence of Arthur Avenue's Italian spirit. Start with a split sesame loaf from Madonia Bakery, then go shopping for your fillings.

New York City has more than its fair share of themed bars. Between the terribly tacky and the oft overpriced, it’s hard to find the diamonds in the rough. From old-school speakeasies to cocktails resembling a scene from JAWS, these 13 themed bars capture themes at their finest.

Note: Bars are listed based on geography, starting south to north in Manhattan, then north to south in Brooklyn

The 38 Essential New York Restaurants, Summer 2017

Your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?"

It's time to update the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?" This highly elite group covers the entire city, spans myriad cuisines, and collectively satisfies all restaurant needs, save for those occasions when you absolutely must spend half a paycheck. Every quarter, we add pertinent restaurants that were omitted, are newly eligible, or have stepped up their game. Restaurants must be open at least six months to be included.

Rather than having a stage-four meltdown over the exclusion of your favorite restaurant from this list, wouldn't it be more productive to just nominate it for inclusion? Or just go ahead and tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
