In business since 1915, Teitel Brothers Wholesale and Retail Grocery Company, as it’s officially known, is the heavyweight of Italian provisioners in the Bronx. Packed to the rafters and spilling into the streets with cans of olive oil, imported tomatoes, vinegars and the like, Teitel Brothers is also bargain central, with what owners claim are the lowest retail and wholesale prices available (the company also supplies many restaurants throughout the country, and some items are sold online). Wheels of imported Parmigiano-Reggiano and Pecorino cheeses, and dangling imported and domestic provolones are priced closer to what you’d pay in Italy than the Upper West Side. The store focuses on high-volume items, rather than providing an exhaustive selection, but if you’re looking for a reliable source for such things as dried fava beans, pasta flour, almond paste, or cases of brand name pastas, nuts and dried fruits, this is your place.
