Over the course of the last year, the Bartolomeo family had been building the 3600 square foot replacement to its former Palisades Park store — which now resides on Dean Street in Englewood. As many of you are aware, Englewood is home to Jerry’s Gourmet, another large Italian grocery store. I had been wondering what Carlo Bartolomeo was going to do to differentiate himself from the incumbent Italian mega-grocery, and now I know what it is — prepared foods.

The new store is significantly larger and much nicer than the older location, featuring many kinds of prepared foods, including sandwiches, salads, and entire main dishes. Bartolomeo also does catering and will prepare many dishes to order as well.

Carlo Bartolomeo hired Leonardo Marino, formerly Sous Chef of Le Bernardin Restaurant in New York City, and Chef De Cuisine of Eric Ripert’s West End Bistro in Washington DC to run Bartolomeo’s kitchen and cook all of the prepared foods for sale on Bartolomeo’s menu. This is serious chef firepower folks. Leo is particularly proud of his Osso Bucco, which is shown here.

Here’s Carlo making some pizza. Pizza is a new addition to Bartolomeo. I’d describe Bartolomeo’s pizza as Foccacia-like, in that it is baked in a pan in order to consistently cook the crust. Bartolomeo uses premium ingredients to make its pizza, including the very same San Marzano tomatoes they sell on their shelves.

    Geez- that looks great. I wish I still worked in Englewood- that place would make all of the parking nightmares worth it ;)

    I’ve been in NJ since ’96, but still get the majority of my Salumeria items and groceries from Glen Cove (it’s convenient when I’m visiting). Now I can make the folks come here! That’s probably overstating things a bit, but I guarantee you that my dad would just love this place. I gotta check it out soon.

  3. wilson says:

    looks great – how do prices/quality compare with Jerry’s?

  4. John says:

    I’m not sure about Bartolomeo having the best cured meat section this side of the Hudson. I can think of at least 4 other shops in Bergen that have a better selection, but of course I wouldn’t tell anyone!

    • Michael says:

      I think Bartolomeo Gourmet Cucina Italian is one of the best places to eat great Italian food. I travel to Italy every year and Bartolomeo makes me feel I am in Italy again. Everything looks fresh and is very tasty. I have been to many places and Bartolomeo’s their cured meat selection is FRESH.

  5. Chris says:

    This place has excellent tasting food and is very clean. The staff is very friendly too.
    So far I have tried the plain pizza which was delicious with its sweet sauce.
    The crab cake I shared was also very good. Tasty! Made with real crab meat and you could taste it more than the normal bread crumb mix that most places use to make it with.
    The tuna salad reminds me of the old Gerde’s Deli in Teaneck. They had one of the best tunas
    around and this one tastes just like it. Their cold cut heros are very delicious too.
    I highly recommend this place.

  6. Teresa says:

    hi i love your food it is the best ever!!! bye

  7. Michael says:

    There food is great. Food is fresh and tasty. Mostly everyone there is Italian. You feel like your in Italy. Their cured meat selection is awesome.

  8. Joel Stein says:

    Visiting NYC and NJ next wk, how do I get there by train from Penn Station, NY?
    Thanks

    • Carlo says:

      Hi Joel
      The best way is for you to take a bus from port authority to Englewood. Im not positive about the exact bus line, but I believe it is the 166 nj transit bus. This should drop you off next to the store. We are right on the corner of North Dean Street, and Demerst . If you have any other questions, please feel free to give us a call here at Bartolomeos: 201-567-7002.

    This place is great! Right around the corner from my apmt, food is delicious.
    We also order from here regularly from work in englewood cliffs.

    I also got stuck in the snow few weeks back and 2 Barts guys helped me out! lol

    Fine addition to the neighborhood (which is going downhill in some areas)

  10. ThatGuy says:

    How do you not go there every day? That place looks like the food court in heaven.

  11. Keith J. Mohrhoff says:

    I LOVE food! Thus, I LOVE Bartolomeo! It ain’t cheap, but it is worth it! People generally won’t remeber what they had for lunch yesterday, but they WILL remember how they felt. If the food is REALLY good–as it is at Bartolomeo’s–that feeling will be remembered a LONG time!
