Calandra's Cheese, the stoic Italian cheese shop, is an Arthur Avenue O.G., one of a few holdouts of a once solely Italian neighborhood that's diversifying every day. It's especially vital for its owner's insistence on quality; unlike other Arthur Avenue bakeries and restaurants, it doesn't rest on its ancestral laurels. The must-buy? Burrino, aged mozzarella stuffed with butter.
Our Tip This Bronx dairy O.G. makes a rare specialty cheese: burrino, aged mozzarella stuffed with butter.
