Food for Thought – New Food Offerings in the Rivertowns – Dominic’s Delicatessen – Tarrytown’s Italian Deli
By Linda Viertel –
A treasure-trove of made-to-order heroes, rolls, wraps and more greet hungry patrons at Dominic’s Delicatessen where imported and domestic fine foods are offered as well. Co-owner, Joseph Fiteni, grew up in the business helping his father at his Mount Vernon, Orchard Street store starting in 1973, keeping the business open for 42 years. And, he passed along his love of working in the family-owned deli to his son, Dominic, who inherited the same passion and knows the business well after working alongside his father for 20 years. Now, they share their food knowledge and love of their Italian heritage with the rivertown community at their new location: 15 North Broadway In Tarrytown.
With 18 sandwich choices, available on a roll or hero, it’s often hard to decide what to order at Dominic’s. But, the Fitenis’ 4 signature Italian combos have been the most popular historically, and still are. The #1: a chicken cutlet, with eggplant, fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers and balsamic; the #2 hot roast beef, with muenster cheese, grilled onions and hot peppers, topped with Boars Head Gourmaise (mayonnaise, mustard and a blend of 3 cracked peppers); the #3 maple-glazed honey ham, topped with smoked gouda,lettuce, tomato and gourmaise; and the #4 maple-glazed honey turkey with crispy bacon, muenster, lettuce and honey mustard are the deli favorites.-
Four burger offerings are made to order, as are Dominic’s four breakfast specials: 2 eggs served with your choices of peppers, soppressata, ham, cheese, onions, or sausage. For a healthy breakfast, try the 3 scrambled egg whites, with low-salt Swiss cheese or feta and turkey. Buttered bagels or a bagel and cream cheese can be grabbed to go. Salads are made in-house, and there are also three wraps on the menu including an avocado caprese. Store-made meatballs on a sub or roll has quickly become a local favorite.
The store’s grocery shelves are filled with multiple dried pastas, Sclafani brand sauces, peppers, crushed tomatoes, sweet peppers, artichoke hearts, Stubbs barbecue sauces and more. A variety of sodas, healthy drinks, chips, and Tate’s Bake Shop cookies often complete a sandwich order. Mighty Leaf teas, Brianna’s dressings, and granolas fill out Dominic’s shelf offerings with additions on the way. And, the refrigerated section is chock-a-block full of Boars Head brand meats and cheeses, Italian specialties and home-made salads – plenty to choose from for a bountiful antipasto platter.
So, stop by Tarrytown’s newest deli, grab a bite at the counter or order something wonderful to go. With summer on the way, what better way to enjoy a picnic in RiverWalk Park than with flavor-filled Dominic’s Delicatessen’ specialties?
