Racks are piled high with amazing pane di casa, breadsticks, semolina, ciccola bread made with pork, chocolate rolls, and much more. The aroma of freshly baked bread so entices that it’s no wonder fans say “Run as fast as you can to Addeo’s!” Go to www.AddeoBakers.com for more information.

TEITEL BROTHERS. Over 100 years ago Jacob and Morris Teitel opened their “corner deli” at the intersection of Arthur Avenue and 186th Street in the heart of the REAL Little Italy. Back then the brothers would carve chunks of quality Parmigiano Reggiano and slices of prosciutto by hand. They ladled olives and olive oil from wooden barrels and scooped pasta from 100lb sacks. Today the barrels and sacks have been replaced by cans, bottles and jars, and include several private label brands of extra virgin olive oils produced in Italy especially for Teitel Brothers. The store is now run by Jacob’s son Gilbert and his three sons. What remains from the store’s legacy is the same fantastic personal service and the variety and quality of specialty products sold at the lowest prices. Go to www.TeitelBros.com for more information.
