Founded in 1913, this quintessential southern Italian deli clearly doesn't fit in with the franchised mix of crap on Washington Street. Fiore's makes its own mozzarella every day, and that mozzarella is fantastic--light and fluffy without a trace of the rubberiness that mars most mozzarellas. It finds its best use in the daily hero special. Tuesday, slices of mozzarella mellow a hot corned beef and mustard sandwich, for the ultimate Italio-Irish fusion, but the Thursday and Saturday hot roast beef hero is even more notorious. And don't miss the Sicilian salad bar a the impressively tart octopus and artichoke salads can't be beat on either side of the Hudson.
