Best Charcuterie, 2017: Prosciutto, pepperoni, salami and coppa are just the beginning at the sprawling Main Line outpost of this South Philly culinary mecca. Items like Ibérico ham and dry-cured chorizo can be hard to get elsewhere, and the knowledgeable staff is always happy to point you in the right direction amid the slew of choices.
From 2011: This Italian specialty mecca has blended so seamlessly into the lineup at Ardmore Farmers Market that it’s easy to forget that it’s only been around since April. Counters of meats, pasta, coffee, cheeses (including fresh mozzarella made on the premises) and prepared goods to-go make Di Bruno’s one-stop shopping at its best.
From 2013: Looking for the ultimate party spread with all the right pairings? Whether or not you know your formaggio, cured meats and Italian delicacies, the Di Bruno staff will guide you in selecting all the cheese, charcuterie, nuts, fruits, and antipasti accoutrements you need for a spread to be proud of.
Best Burrata 2015: Buttery and melt-in-your-mouth dreamy, this is perhaps the sexiest of all cheeses. The nearly century-old artisanal recipe is perfection, with a hearty, crusty slice of bread, a splash of EVOO or honey, and an oaky chardonnay.
Best Corporate Catering 2015: Impress your clients with a serious spread from this South Philly institution. The European breakfast-cheese tray is divine—and don’t forget DiBruno’s coffee. Sandwiches, hors d’oeuvres and platters are beautifully constructed and bring delicious flavor combinations to every business function.
Best Cheesemonger 2016: You should know by now that there’s no need to drive to Philly, with an outpost of the famed Di Bruno Bros. going gangbusters at the Ardmore Farmers Market. This cheese cave offers everything from Di Bruno’s signature mozzarella cheese ball and spreads—try the provolone- and-Chianti combo—to a seasonal Bûcheron. Prepare a DIY charcuterie plate, create a gift basket, or pick up a made-to-order sandwich
