Arthur Avenue in the Bronx remains a close-knit neighborhood of Italian food shops, most of which have been in business for over 100 years. Join us for a walking tour of Arthur Avenue and 187th Street as we visit butchers, bakers, and cheese shops, as well as the famous Arthur Avenue Retail Market. We taste some of the best bites in Little Italy and meet the food artisans who are keeping traditions alive.
