Eating Italian doesn’t have to mean destroying your budget at some Little Italy tourist trap. You can get affordable Italian treats at Trinacria. This family-run business has been shelling out Italian groceries, wine, and sandwiches for more than a century. The pasta, sauces, cookies, and prepared foods are all worth digging into, but we are devoted to the sandwiches. Oh, man, are those giant sandwiches of crunchy bread stuffed with Italian meats delicious. And they’re generally large enough to serve as lunch for two. Of course, the affordable wines are also a draw, and the fresh bread—and did we mention the cookies?
