Amore Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen, Armonk
I judge eggplant by its tenderness and by whether you can tell it’s eggplant. You see, I’m just not a fan. However, I kept wanting more of Amore’s version, and having a rustic tomato sauce helps big time. If this eggplant-parm non-fan liked it, true believers will love it.
Fortina, Armonk,Rye Brook, Stamford
It was a no-brainer for Fortina to take their already excellent deep-fried meatballs and tomato ragù and line them up on toasted Italian bread topped with copious amounts of grated Parmesan.
“BOH” Sandwich (chicken parm)
Amore Cucina & Bar, Stamford
While most spots make it classic, Bruno DiFabio’s Amore puts their own spin on a chicken parm by adding a couple fried eggs and a touch of spicy Sriracha on top of house-made bread. Eggs and chicken parm? It works for brunch, lunch, or dinner.
