Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Beyond the dozens of Sicilian specialties imported exclusively for owners Joe and Agata Musco and Louie Balducci—like tough-to-find Southern Italian olive oils, jams, tomato sauces and coffees—this immaculate supermarket boasts outstanding groceries. Gasp at the stellar local and heirloom produce, a sparkling fish and caviar counter (try the excellent taramasalata), a station dedicated to a wealth of house-made pastas and more. There are also prepared foods: A 35-member kitchen creates top-notch takeout, from wild-mushroom risotto to roasted duck.
