NY Food Tour: Classic Italian Hero at Faicco’s Pork Store

August 14, 2008
NYC Food Guy Note: I’m on vacation in California so I’m sending you on a NY Food Tour to keep your stomach happy while I’m gone. Enjoy the deliciousness.

  • What: Forget artisan breads and fancy olive oils, Faicco’s, an old school butcher shop, wedges prosciutto, ham cappy, your choice of hot or sweet soppresseta (go with hot), fresh mozzarella, your choice of roasted red peppers or sun dried tomatoes, lettuce, tomato, oil and vinegar, and salt and pepper in the middle of a traditional seeded hero roll. Simple, satisfying, fresh, and delicious
  • Cost: $10
  • Where: 260 Bleecker Street b/t 6th & 7th Avenue NY, NY 10014 212-243-1974
  • Inside info: Snack on some store-made fresh mozz mozzarella sticks, potato croquettes ($0.75), rice balls ($0.75) or fried priscuitto balls ($1) while you’re waiting for your sandwich to be made. Faicco’s also makes delicious pork and chicken sausages so pick some up and bring them home.
