New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Torrisi looks old-fashioned with its vintage signage, hanging salamis, tile work and dry goods lining the shelves. But co-owners/co-chefs Rich Torrisi and Mario Carbone have a decidedly modern outlook when it comes to the Italian deli. They've worked with top NYC Italian chefs, like Mario Batali and Andrew Carmellini, who've no doubt influenced their reliance on superior seasonal ingredients. There's a beautiful spread of vegetable antipasti sold by the quarter-pound and house-cured anchovies. Coffee and pastries are served at breakfast.
