It’s might be last week of New York City Restaurant Week, but the Bronx is launching today its first ever “Little Italy in the Bronx” Restaurant Week that will run form February 3 to 13th! Centered around Arthur Avenue, a hotspot for Italian cuisine with a long history, the prices are even lower than regular restaurant week at $20 for a three-course prix-fixe lunch and $30 for a three-course prix-fixe dinner (excluding gratuity, tax, and alcohol).
Among some of the places you can sample include Mario’s Restaurant that celebrated its 100th anniversary last year and has been frequented by celebrities from Elizabeth Taylor to Martin Scorsese (and a century of the local populace) and one of Arthur Avenue’s newest, MangiPasta, opened by a couple from Naples. The fast casual eatery offers Italian cuisine with fresh produce and ingredients prepared on-site by hand every day.
Another long-time restaurant which is participating in the first-ever Bronx “Little Italy in the Bronx” Restaurant Week include Ann & Tony’s which was established in 1927. The other restaurants are Antonio’s Trattoria with traditional recipes that emulate nonna’s home cooking, Arthur Avenue Fiasco and Gerbasiwith all homemade pasta, MichaelAngelo’s with its brick oven, and San Gennaro
