Zito’s boasts a prime location, a sleek deli-style interior, and a menu starring fourteen epic unions of bread, greens, and meat. Faux-graffiti logos mark a fenced-in backyard with a pair of sturdy dark-wood tables; a line of growlers and Sixpoint drafts certifies the spot’s locavore pedigree. Light openers like a cool faro and pesto salad and a tray of aranzini rice balls filled with cheese, pork, and spinach satisfy. Each house hero sandwich consists of top-notch ingredients sourced from local sellers, like classic Chelsea chop shop Salumaria Biellese. White flour flakes off the crusts of Italian loaves made fresh every morning in a bakery in Bensonhurst. Veggie sandwiches include a dense eggplant parm and a room-temperature “meatless” option loaded with portobello, roasted peppers, and broccoli rabe atop a chunky artichoke spread. On the menu’s beefier side, a solid meatball parm still pales before the star attraction, an “8 Hour Slow-Cooked Pork Bracciole.” It’s a hefty hero filled with tender chunks of that other white meat, which blissfully dissolves the second it hits the tongue.Recommended Dishes
