D’Abruzzo NYC To Return to Smorgasburg in Willamsburg for 2019

D’AbruzzoNYC, the award-winning food vendor that brings true street food from the Abruzzi region of Italy, will return for its third season at Smorgasburg in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The season begins April 6. D’Abruzzo will be at the Williamsburg Smorgasburg every Saturday, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and every Sunday in Prospect Park.

“We love Smorgasburg. It is where we started and from there D’Abruzzo has continued to grow due to the appreciation and support of our customers who found us there,” said D’Abruzzo NYC founder Tommaso Conte. “Our food is simple, the highest quality and completely authentic, which has become the main reason we have been successful.”

D’Abruzzo NYC has quickly become known for its signature offering, arrosticini. A true Abruzzese offering, arrosticini are skewers of delicate cubes of lamb, cooked with high heat a specially-made grill. D’Abruzzo NYC’s arrosticini has garnered awards and has been featured in local and international media.

“I use only the best meat, it is butchered very precisely and cooked perfectly,” said Conte. “I cannot count the number of times I have had customers tell me they hate lamb and then come back multiple times. It is that good.”

D’Abruzzo NYC also makes its own pizzelle, a soft waffle-like cookie that is served with either a house-made bourbon fig jam or the ever-popular Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread.

“I use a recipe that has been in my family for generations and each pizelle is made by hand, by us, every week,” said Conte. “The house-made fig jam is great, but you cannot improve on the perfection of Nutella. Why try?”

D’Abruzzo NYC continues to add special events and private catering to its schedule. 

“Since our first day at Smorgasburg I think people felt how dedicated we are to bringing something real, something great, and something unique to the New York food scene,” said Conte. “We are selling tradition, and that is something most everyone can understand.”
