Sandwich Shop Brings Italian Flavors to Financial District

FINANCIAL DISTRICT — A new sandwich shop on Nassau Street is bringing the flavors of an authentic Italian salumeria, or deli, to the Financial District.“These are the kind of sandwiches we grew up eating in Italy,” said Antonella Nazzaro, 33, who co-owns the recently opened Pisillo Italian Paniniwith her husband, Carmelo, 40. “The ingredients, most of the meats, cheeses, are imported from Italy, and we think people will love the sandwiches as much as we do.”

The sandwiches served in the small, simple storefront at 97 Nassau St. start with long rolls that are sliced in half and packed with cheeses like smoked or fresh mozzarella, Italian deli meats including prosciutto, sopressata or mortadella and often some greens, such as arugula, with an added kick from roasted peppers, artichokes or sun-dried tomatoes. 


And while most American think of a “panini” as a hot-pressed or grilled sandwich, Antonella said that in Italy, panini simply means “sandwiches”— and all of Pisillo’s massive panini are served cold.

The 25 made-to-order sandwiches range in price from $8.50 to $11.90.

The couple, who moved from southern Italy to Bensonhurst seven years ago, also run a company that imports Italian products — most of which they’ll be using in their sandwiches, Nazzaro said. The fresh-baked bread, however, is from Royal Crown Bakery in Bensonhurst, an Italian bakery.

The sandwich shop is named Pisillo for Carmelo’s grandfather, who owned a cafe and salumeria outside of Naples.

“We have a history of serving people good food in our family,” Carmelo said. “It’s a tradition we’re excited to bring here.”

Say No to the LBD this Spring?

As a native New Yorker,  my most comfortable uniform is this:



It’s functional.  It’s versatile.  It works.  For me, anyway.  But now that spring is in the air, I see florals sprouting on dresses all around town:



Cute, right?  What are your thoughts? Will you put down your LBD this spring in favor of color this spring?

Hummus & Pita Co. opened!


Ready for Another Middle Eastern Restaurant?

Thapco’s menu extends well beyond hummus and pita, also including gyros, shawarma (love that word), steak, and more, and you have options similar to those at Chipotle around the corner: wrap your chosen fillings in a laffa, fill a pita with them, have them in a bowl or a platter, and so on. The pita and laffa breads are baked on site in a taboon oven.   79 Chambers, Via Tribeca Citizen  -KM



Patterns in TriBeCa History

TriBeCa shop owner, Mme. Demorest was not only considered the “supreme law in the fashion realm of this country” by her competitors back in the 1800s, she was an innovator, an advocate for freedom and equality, and a marketing genius. Developing a magazine purely for the purpose of selling product? Where have I seen that before? (Hello, Martha Stewart!)  However she forgot to do one very important thing, which led to the downfall of her business. Read about it here.
