We all know about A&S Pork Store in Montrose and Thornwood. But did you know about the new one in Mount Kisco? Our Northern Westchester New in Town correspondent Latoya West reported on it recently:
A little bit of Italy has come to Mount Kisco in the form of A+S Marketplace. The salumeria (delicatessen) carries imported cheeses, salami and prosciutto di Parma, as well as home-style food cooked in the open kitchen by owner Marilyn Competiello. The staff makes fresh mozzarella three or four times a day.
“We would never sell an old mozzarella. Never,” Competiello says. Though Competiello was born in the States, her Italian husband taught her the ropes for 18 years at his Thornwood deli.
In December, Competiello and her partners, above, from left, Paul Cortese and John Cioffi, opened the doors on this new venture. Some of Competiello’s personal favorites are the grilled chicken with lemon and caper sauce and the broccoli rabe with garlic and oil. She also makes eggplant parmigiana, meat and vegetable lasagna and “everyone’s favorite,” pasta fagioli. The store also carries fresh pasta and ravioli, cookies, bread, pastries and other groceries.
