The Village Voice introduces us to the restaurants that feed the thousands of workers at the huge Hunts Point Cooperative wholesale food market in the Bronx. I am looking forward to trying: the broccoli rabe sandwich at Fratelli's Pizza Cafe the camarones (shrimp) on Fridays only at the Dominican La Misma Nelly Coffee Shop, the pernil (roast pork) at Randall Restaurant, Frank's Filthy sandwich, which features barbecued chicken and mac and cheese, at Market Kitchen.
I've had Mo Gridder's barbecue (good ribs, substandard pulled pork), but I have to admit I have never been to any of the other places the Voice mentions. The story is also a revealing glimpse about life at the Hunts Point Market, which is open 24 hours a day Monday through Friday. I don't know about all of the restaurants, but at least one, Fratelli's, is open the entire time.
