Broders' Pasta Bar was established in 1994. Their signature product was homemade egg pasta, and it remains a central point of their business today. Their repertoire of eat-in and take-out dishes expanded rapidly, as did the artisan ingredients they offer from Italy and first-rate American suppliers. As the years rolled on, they continued to add new products, expanded catering options, and increased the breadth of their grocery and household items. In the restaurant, you can enjoy the 23 different pasta and risotto on the menu nightly, and the pasta bar quickly became the local place to experience both great food and excellent value.

Price: Starts from $6.5
