This venerable delicatessen, overstocked butcher and café is located in the city’s most beloved food-and-kitchen-supplies market. The glossy menu may paralyze your family with indecision; it lists more than 50 sandwiches, plus platters, pastas, soups, salads, stromboli and sides. Ingredients are of high quality, including Mike’s own soppressata and filet mignon bresaola. Let your kids try a little Italian nougat, if they’re feeling adventurous; and don’t miss peeking at the guys hand-rolling cigars out front.
