Regina’s Grocery, newly opened on the Lower East Side, sells classic Italian sandwiches using top-notch imported ingredients. With names like ‘Big Anthony’ and ‘Grandma Lucy’, each menu item is named for a family member of the owner.
Italian goods like canned Sclafani tomatoes and Torino Flatbreads line a wall alongside family photos. Jazzy Frank Sinatra tunes play in the background.
Regina’s Grocery was included in New York Magazine’s 2017 list of “Cheap Eats” – the best places that have opened within the past year offering quality grub at affordable prices. Regina’s sizeable sandwiches, heavy on cold cuts and cheese, range in price from $12-$16.
