Joe Parisi behind the counter at the Parisi bakery DeliParisi Bakery Delicatessen at 198 Mott Street is where we started our bakery 106 years ago. This building's basement still contains our original brick oven where we baked our very first loaf. In 1974, we moved our bakery to 290 Elizabeth Street to satisfy the rising retail customer demand for Parisi bread. All Parisi baking was transferred to our Elizabeth location, leaving our original store as our friendly neighborhood connection to the general public.

Our Deli is Operated and Managed by Joe Parisi

Our Deli is being run by the grandson of our founder, who is also named Joe. Joe is the older brother of Franki Parisi, (manages bread distribution) and Mike Parisi, (bakes the bread). Joe exclusively handles the delicatessen part of the business.

The Parisi Bakery Delicatessen is committed to providing the best quality, finest and freshest Italian specialty foods and our own renowned Parisi Bread. Our Deli is a full function Italian delicatessen and famous throughout New York City for their sandwiches. Of course our sandwiches are famous because of two things: firstly, our fresh Parisi Bread and secondly the abundance of the finest, highest quality and freshest ingredients.
