Arthur Ave.

Dinner at Zero Otto Nove
Just beyond the gates of Fordham is a wonderful place called Arthur Ave.  Arthur Ave. has an endless amount of restaurants, bakeries, grocery and retail stores, along with off-campus student housing.  It is because of the various shops and eateries that Arthur Ave. serves as one of the largest off-campus social hub for Fordham students.

Arthur Ave. is known as the original Little Italy.  Lining the blocks are numerous authentic Italian restaurants with recipes that have been passed down for generations.  Two of my favorites are Michaelangelo’s and Zero Otto Nove.  When my family comes to visit, we usually choose one of these two places to catch up and have a fantastic meal.  Although Arthur Ave. is known to be mainly Italian, there are plenty of other options that are just as good!  Some of these include Estrellita’s, a Mexican restaurant, Umai Fusion, a great place to go if you’re in the mood for sushi, Full Moon Pizzeria, and Simon’s Deli.  Another great thing is that most of these places deliver to the residence halls on campus!  

Although Fordham has many eating options on campus, sometimes it is nice to branch out and try new things.  Arthur Ave. is the perfect place for Fordham students to do that!  It is relatively inexpensive and has a ton of variety.
