La Strada Deli Moving From Midland Park to Ridgewood

Popular deli moving across from Whole Foods at 23 Godwin Avenue.

One of Bergen County's more decorated Italian delicatessens is scheduled to set up shop in Ridgewood this fall.

Nestled in an expansive historic bank building at the top of the Godwin Avenue hill in Midland Park since 1992, in mid-October La Strada Gourmet Deli will be marching down to 23 Godwin Avenue in Ridgewood, across from Whole Foods.

"We're downsizing," owner Eugene Myer told Patch. "The groceries are no longer going to be a part of the operation. We'll still have all the prepared foods, full-service catering, homemade sauces, fresh pasta."

La Strada is well known in the area for its premium imported Italian meats (try the "Alfonso"), stromboli, chicken parmigana and the brick oven sandwich bread, among others.

Parking at the current La Strada isn't so great either, we go there often. More than 3 or 4 cars and you have a problem... unless there are any spaces avail on the side street, but often there aren't. Heard a huge rent increase forced the decision. Other longtime friends own Garbo's in HHK which also has little parking and they've managed OK. La Strada does a good job and I hope they will continue to do well in the new place.

Hmm...this Italian Deli will be situated pretty closely to an Italian bakery owned by a tv personality. Wonder if the italian deli will see some of the tv action...

The lion's share of their revenue and profit probably come from the catering side of the business which is not dependent on parking.

The original owners of La Strada have re-opened at the Midland Park location as Grosso's Italian Specialties. I remember that Grosso's Deli was located next to Market Basket in Franklin Lakes and then the opened La Strada in 92'. Hopefully, they are bring back their Subs!!
