Feast of San Gennaro 2013

If you tried navigating your way through Little Italy this past weekend, you most certainly noticed the street-clogging, pastry-filled Feast of San Gennaro happening. For aficionados of cannoli, torrone and zeppole, the street fair is a necessarily annual pilgrimage (a little secondhand cigar smoke is a small price to pay). As one man memorably instructed his friend before taking a huge bite of the sandwich in his hands, "You gotta try the braciola with the broccoli rabe!"


You have until September 22, when the festival ends, to heed that advice. (You can also sample the latest cronut pretender, a cannoli-donut hybrid, found in the third slide above. Is it weird that we think it looks better than the Dominique Ansel original?)
