For decades, Latticini Barese at 138 Union Street had the best fresh mozzarella in the neighborhood, hands down. Their fresh ricotta was amazing as well. Joe Balzano Sr.'s deli closed back in 2002, leaving many in the neighborhood pining for his cheese and sandwiches. The New York Times even dedicated an article to it when it closed its doors.
Every time I cross the B.Q.E. at Union Street, I look up and see the fading, chipping sign and think of the place.
Does anyone remember it and miss it as well?
