Fiore's Deli

Hoboken is known for its old-school Italian delis that specialize in sandwiches and perfectly briney housemade mozzarella. Fiore’s is one of them, and it’s famous for its hot roast beef special with mutz and gravy. There are no written menus—instead, the deli clerk will guide you through ingredient options and daily specials, and if you’re lucky, hand you a chunk of housemade mozzarella for you to taste. You can get an excellent Italian combo with thick slices of mozzarella, juicy peppers, and a light drizzle of balsamic any day that they’re open, but be prepared to wait a long time on Thursdays and Saturdays, when they serve the acclaimed roast beef special. Bring cash, and ask for extra napkins.
