In the 1950’s and 60’s Park Slope was dominated by Italian families and their influence still thrives today in neighborhood institutions like Russo’s Mozzarella & Pasta.
At Russo’s you can grab any picnic supplies your heart desires, or have their Sandwich Artisans do the work for you. The store celebrates the best of Italian food culture, and is littered with aromatic cheeses, home-made sauces, fresh cut meats and hand-made pastas.
Whether you take a full spread to the park, pick up a sandwich on the go, or take home necessities for a homespun feast, their high quality products are worth the trek to Brooklyn as well as the price tag.
