Chicken parm and Bronx tales, first-pressed olive oil and hand-pulled mozzarella, bubbly Neapolitan pizza and fresh pasta cut to order, coal oven-baked loaves and barrels full of briny olives, it’s all on Arthur Avenue.
If you’ve ever dreamed of meandering around Arthur Avenue’s historic markets and stores, snacking and shopping, stocking your pantry like an Italian nonna and gathering ingredients for a big Sunday supper, this is the tour for you.
Narrated and guided by Arthur Avenue Food Tours's founders, Danielle Oteri and Christian Galliani. Danielle Oteri is a food writer and art historian whose family’s Arthur Avenue shop opened in 1918, the Shopping & Tasting tour draws on 102 years of history and community. Christian is an award-winning sommelier and an Italian wine expert.
The tour includes stops at a dozen carefully curated shops with notes and photos for each one that describe the shop, its history, advice on what to buy (like the amazing black olive bread at Madonia), and what to taste while you're there. The app also includes a lively audio guide to listen to while you stroll, shop and eat.
