Where to Experience True Italian Aperitivos in New York This Summer

Jul 22, 2014  |   Contributor: Donald Herrera-Fairbairn

Time and again, the concept of aperitivo Italiano is directly compared with the American deal-fest that we so lovingly refer to as happy hour. However, there are some striking differences between the two that should be discussed. Taking place primarily in northern Italian cities like Milan and Turin, aperitivo normally happens between 7 and 9 p.m. and serves as a socializing appetizer before Italians enjoy their decidedly late dinners. Though discounted prices aren't at play (those who advertise discounted prices are usually just catering to tourists), they do often come with small tapas-like plates to accompany guests' beverages.

The Best Italian Festivals in New England

Jul 17, 2014  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

Whether through firsthand experience or hearsay, anyone even vaguely familiar with Italian culture knows that food and feasts are an incredibly important aspect of Italian social life. Italians first began heavily immigrating to the United States during the late 1800s through the 1930s, in a period referred to as the "New Immigration," and with them they brought over their delicious recipes that many still use today.
