Calling all Foodies

Those of us who work in the Bronx already know a well-kept secret: there are plenty of great eats to be found right here in the Rose Hill campus' borough. And over the next week, the fourth annual Bronx Restaurant Week offers good deals as well.

Here are a couple of recommendations from Fordham faculty and staff:

MARK NAISON, professor of history:

Pio Pio - Great peruvian restaurant on 139th St. and Cypress Ave.
Crab Shanty on City Island. Great lunch special!
Neerob, a South Asian Restaurant near Parkchester.

PATRICK RYAN, S.J., Avery Dulles Professor of Theology:

Emilia's on Arthur Avenue, excellent prix fixe lunch.

GEORGE EVANS, director of technical operations for WFUV Public Radio:

Tino's Delicatessen on Arthur Avenue.
Roberto's or Zero Otto Nove for fancier Italian/American dishes.
Something I've grown up eating since I was a little boy is the round Italian bread from Terranova Bakery.

Savor the Bronx is underway and lasts through November 14. For more information, go to
