Arancini—risotto balls stuffed with a litany of fillings—have been sold on the streets of Sicily for centuries, but never gained the same popularity stateside. Former music techs David Campaniello and Will Levatino thought that was a crime; the pair met on tour, bonded over the fried snacks, and started selling their own crispy, creamy orbs at the Hester Street Fair. Their brick-and-mortar shop offers a rotating selection of six Sicilian-style rice balls in traditional (meat ragù), creative (mushroom and Taleggio) and sweet (Nutella) varieties.
