    "The Hill" St. Louis

    Fri Feb 01, 2013 10:10 am Groupie

    I live in a small village, rural mid-west U.S. of A. 200 miles to the west is a huge Amish Village where I can find amazing cheese, breads and meats. 250 miles to the east is Chicago, pick a borough. 250 miles to the south is a city called St. Louis, with one amazing neighborhood known nation-wide. It's called "The Hill".

    Our first year here we heard of this twice a year migration to "The Hill". Families and friends would car pool down to "The Hill" for a day of shopping and eating, Italian-American Style. By shopping I mean "Foodie" shopping-the really good stuff! Need a bakery...visit Amighetti's on Wilson, or Vitales on Marconi, or Marconi's on Marconi.
    Need something more? A few steps away is Girasole Gifts and Imports for something special. Need some serious Italian Salami n' stuff? Then you have to visit Volpi's on Daggett. OMG!!!!!!

    So, tell me about it! Where's your favorite Little Italy?

    I love Volpi salamis - they cost twice as much as other brands, but it's the one I buy - the Genoa in particular.

    When I was first in Chicago, I worked very close to Little Italy in Chicago - part of that neighborhood was demolished to build the third U of I campus, still bitter feelings about it. We often would walk down to a deli in the area closest to our campus to get Italian subs. I have not been there in decades.

    There is nothing that I strongly identify as an Italian area in the western suburbs, although there are a number of Italian-style delis. A couple of my markets are heavily Italian influenced, and that's where I tend to go.

    Ok, this is near & dear to my heart as I live here!!
    The wonders of it all!!!! Let's just say I am in Foodie-Heaven.
    The shops are wonderful ---I frequent them often searching out their treasures of my heritage.

    Walking thru the doors here was like a step back in time..rippled & worn wooden floors from the footsteps of those who walked here before me, the smells so familiar & array of packages lining the shelves with that ever familiar red, white & green.

    Volpi is another favorite of mine..I have a love affair omgoing with their Hot Italian Sausage....the best I've ever had. The link lets you cruise thru thier line of products & drool icon_lol.gif

    This one is in walking distance from both home & work
    It's jam packed with all kinds of wonderful foods & as tiny as the place is it has a small deli & makes a killing 'grinder'.
    Urzi's has aFB page if you care to visit as well as a website.

    so from The Hill I say.....
