Belmont is home to the Bronx’s Little Italy, anchored by bustling Arthur Avenue with its family-run shops, bakeries and groceries. Between bites of cannoli and sips of espresso, discover an enclave that’s brimming with old-world charm.
Take the B, D or 4 train to Fordham Road, then walk to Arthur Avenue, between East 187th Street and Crescent Avenue, to find the core of Little Italy.
The grocers in Arthur Avenue Retail Market. Come hungry, because they have all the fresh mozz, cured meat and Italian pastries you can eat.
Local craft brews at the Bronx Beer Hall, which is a great place to relax after a day of shopping and snacking.
It’s worth venturing off the main drag for a taste of neighborhood favorites like Casa Della Mozzarella and Artuso Pastry Shop.
