Buon ItaliaPrint This Page
With the exodus of many Italian retail businesses to the outer boroughs, New York’s Little Italy has become little more than a tourist attraction. Where to find authentic Italian products in the city? Check out Buon Italia in Chelsea Market.
Owner Giuseppe Maccioni stocks a wide variety of high-quality packaged items, as well as fresh necessities like mozzarella, mascarpone, and ricotta. Definitely grab a bottle of Cesare Giaccone wine vinegar (who makes it for his own restaurant in the wine-rich Piedmont region) and, at the deli, a couple slices of the porchetta (roasted pork seasoned with herbs and garlic).
