Owner Joe Clemente hails from Brooklyn where his family had successful grocery businesses. In 2008, he opened Dolce & Clemente in Robbinsville, New Jersey. If you visit, it is in the same shopping center as De Lorenzo’s Tomato Pies, so you can shop before or after your pizza. They have a deli counter, bakery and prepared meal sections.
So much Italian bread
Plenty of taralli and even gluten-free pasta

the hard-to-find basket cheese
real buttermilk! (OK, maybe the average Italian cook doesn’t need this one, but I sure do!)
a huge deli department
lots of cheeses and even canned Jersey tomatoes! And, of course, plenty of Brioschi for after the meal!

San Remo Italian Imports in Totowa, New Jersey, is an Italian imports store owned by a friendly man from Italy that sells food and sundries, such as canned and jarred foods, cookies, candies, cakes, olive oil, vinegar, coffee– your essential items from Italy. There are some kitchen items like bowls, platters and cheese graters. The store also has some Italian greeting cards, movies, CDs, T-shirts and tchotchke from Italy like Italian horns, keychains, wooden Pinocchios and stickers. One of the highlights of this store is that they sell Italian magazines, which are hard to find. They have a good selection of tabloid-type, cooking and news magazines.
If you are looking for the best in kitchen appliances, Krup’s Kitchen & Bath in Chelsea is the place to go. If you want something with a retro feel or in a unique color, Krup’s has it. Look at this adorable 1950s-style refrigerator from Smeg in pink:
How about this adorable oven range from BlueStar in purple:
Fishs Eddy is the quintessential store for dinnerware with its interesting and kitschy designs. If you’re a NYC fan, there are many local patterns like the New York skyline, the tunnels, the Brooklyn bridge, dog walkers, Brooklyn and more. I got the Brooklynese set for my mom.
They have other designs too like Alice in Wonderland, the New York Times crossword puzzle and this pretty pattern from Lotta Jansdotter that I wrote about before.

Fishs Eddy also has a cool collection of vintage dishes dating back to 1903.
I also like these small trays. I got one that’s a recipe card, but there are others like a parking ticket, a lotto ticket, a restaurant check, a prescription and more.
