There's is no better store in America for meats, fishes/shellfish, olive oil and specialty oils, true balsamic vinegar and other specialty vinegars, a deli case, the cheese case, a variety of butters, and imported/handmade pastas. And that's just what's on the shelf for the taking! You can pretty well special order anything you'd like, too, if it's part of Italian cuisine. During the holidays, they have the finest heritage turkeys, white truffles, and good panettone (not the dried-out stuff that passes for it everywhere else). They always have air-chilled, free-range chickens in the house, and sometimes duck. During flush times over the past 30 years, I shopped there weekly. But even now, it's worth saving up for fine quality: eat less, but eat the best, works for me. If you get the chance, get there after Mike, a long-time butcher, makes his own Mike's Mix ground beef. A list of which meats, with their fat percentages, sits right on the counter. Other than grinding your own special favorite, it's the best I've ever tasted. All the employees are not only friendly, they're very knowledgeable and eager to help. Every request, no matter how picky, is, "No problem." While you're there, might as well pick up some 1"+ pork chops, and even thicker New York strips. Now I'm hungry. Don't go their before supper, though, because you'll spend way too much. The aroma is to die for.
