Riassunto: A GUIDEBOOK TO OVER 250 ITALIAN RESTAURANTS LOCATED IN AMERICA'S HISTORIC LITTLE ITALY NEIGHBORHOODS
Between 1880 and 1910 over 2 million Italians crossed the Atlantic in search of the American Dream; bringing with them the clothes on their backs, commitment to their faith and family, a desire to work hard, and the wonderful cuisine that became America's favorite. The new immigrants usually settled in big cities and developed completely Italian neighborhoods. Another 2 million Italians emigrated between 1910 and 1920. The "Little Italy" neighborhoods blossomed during that time as the newly arriving immigrants sought out those who had emigrated earlier from their same town in Italy. These neighborhoods were filled with the sights, sounds and, of course, the smells of their native land. The restaurants, markets, bakeries and cafes created a slice of Naples, Florence or Palermo in cities such as Boston, New York and San Francisco.
Gentrification and rising real estate prices have left only vestigages of the proud ethnic identity of many Little Italys. However, several thrive to this day. They are among the most popular neighborhoods for tourists to visit in their respective cities and offer the finest and most authentic Italian food you'll find on this side of the Atlantic at their restaurants, cafes, markets and bakeries.
We travelled coast to coast visiting the most vibrant Little Italy neighborhoods in America and have put together this dining guide to their wonderful Italian restaurants. The guide includes a photograph and complete write-up of each restaurant, over 250 in all. The neighborhoods included in the book are:
Boston's North End, Providence's Federal Hill, New Haven's Wooster Street,
The Bronx' Arthur Avenue, New York's Little Italy, Philadelphia's South Philly,
Chicago's Little Italy and Heart Of Italy, Saint Louis' The Hill
and San Francisco's North Beach
We've also included in the book photographs of all the cafes, markets, bakeries and other places of historical and cultural interest that complete these neighborhoods and make them special places in the hearts of all Americans.
