Sicilian Vasteddi at La Foccaceria

.

 
My Old BUDDY VINNY
 
was part of the GREENWICH VILLAGE LES SICILIAN ENCLAVE
 
His father started La FOCACCERIA on 1st Avenue way back when ?
 
VINNY continued running La Focacceria until 2010 when sadly the doors 
 
were shuttered. Sadly because it was a cool old-school Sicilian Joint of which there was
 
no other quite like it in Manhattan. Brooklyn Yes but not in Manhattan, not ever
since I moved to New York in 1983 …
 
 
 
A VASTEDDI SANDWICH at La FOCACCERIA
A VASTEDDI is a Specialty of PALERMO. It’s a sandwich made of BEEF SPLEEN
fried in lard and set on a Sesame Seed Bun with RICOTTA and CACIOCAVALO CHEESE. 
 
 
The ONLY Place to get a good VASTEDDI Now is
 
at FERDINANDO’S FOCACCERIA on Union Street
 
CARROLL GARDENS , BROOKLYN
