In this episode of Family Food, we head to Tony’s Beechhurst in Whitestone, Queens to eat Italian deli food like no other. We meet Emilio and Jospehine Polito, immigrants who worked tirelessly to make Tony’s into the neighborhood staple that it is today.
Their three sons—Tommy, Mario, and Angelo—all work in the deli too, and will remember your name, your order, and be the first to tell you that nobody’s cooking compares with their mom’s. Getting to know the Politos is a true first glance into what it means to run a family business. Tony’s is their home. We just might move in, too.
