This family-owned grocery store stocks specialty foods from around the globe, with an emphasis on Italian foods and…More take-home meals. Shelves of high-quality and rare olive oil, cases of artisan cheeses and meats, stacks of exotic chocolate (some even made with Earl Grey tea) and massive jars of various truffles line the walls. Floor-to-ceiling cool cases keep house-made pasta sauces, stuffed ravioli and gnocchi fresh, and fresh-baked cannoli fill hulking glass containers.
A huge chart above the register lists the ingredients of every homemade pasta and the best way to cook each kind. Or if you prefer your meal ready-to-go, housemade entrees such as flat-bottomed meatballs, duck and squash lasagna or Argentine empanadas are sold. Occasional cooking classes share Capone family kitchen secrets.
Insider info: Various Capone products are used across the street at Bloc 11 coffee shop.
