In its third generation as a family-owned butcher shop, Yore Butchers wields a meat-carving team that draws upon a lifetime’s worth of slicing experience to produce pristinely fresh cuts and prepared foods. Sink mouth mincers into the shop's USDA Choice or higher meats, such as thin sausage with cheese and parsley ($5.99/lb.) or Italian-style veal cutlets ($12.99/lb.), each of which comes with a letter of recommendation from its peers. Customers can also pick from Yore's line of specialty items and ready-to-cook dishes.
Fragrant roses and fine wine can be key elements of a romantic evening, and both can be found at Wine & Roses, a family-owned boutique in business since 1987. In addition to a full florist's shop and liquor store, patrons can find gourmet foods, gift baskets, stuffed animals, and balloons. Delivery is available throughout Bergen County.
The staffers at Hooked hand select an array of fish, meat, and produce, filling glass coolers with seafood such as sushi-grade yellowfin tuna, scallops, and locally caught cod. They never freeze their fresh selections, lending the food a more natural taste and a decided advantage at freeze tag. Beyond Hooked's fish market, patrons can opt to dine in or carry-out lunches of fried crab cakes, garden salads topped with lobster, and grilled steak sandwiches from an ample menu.
For the past decade, Fratelli Market's Brooklyn-bred famiglia has made its pastas and sauces according to a 30-year-old recipe and conjures its mozzarella from scratch throughout the day to serve as a base layer for its genuine Italian sandwiches. Brooklyn-style marinara sauce adds a distinctive accent to a plate of spaghetti or sack of accidentally cooked laundry with locatelli romano cheese and spices. Otherwise, mix and match the bacon-infused tomato vodka sauce with Fratelli's fresh-cut linguine, penne, and angel hair swept from the floors of heaven's finest barbershops. The pine-nutty walnut sauce, however, was created with the market's jumbo pumpkin ravioli in mind.
