Long-time merchants include the Arthur Avenue Baking Company offering focaccia, stuffed breads and pane di casa and Peter’s Meat Market which has been selling fresh-cut meats and poultries since 1970.
Mike’s Deli features a selection of meats and cheese that will take you back to your nonna’s kitchen, from the dry soppresate and sausages to the ricotta salata and mozzarella which is made fresh every day. Mike’s Deli brought Arthur Avenue to the Food Network’s “Throwdown with Bobby Flay” when owner David Greco battled the Southern celebrity chef for the title of “Best Eggplant Parmagiana” and won.
