One day I was gnawing on some delicious prosciutto bread at my friends' apartment. When I asked them where they'd gotten it, they told me, "The place that sells tombstones downstairs, and it was only $1!" And it was all true! Grande Monuments is a family business run by neighborhood local Jerry, whose uncle started the business in the '50s. The Italian bread served here comes from Jerry's cousin's bakery, Il Fornaretto Bakery, on 17th Ave. in Brooklyn. On certain days when he needs to get rid of the bread before heading home you can hear him yelling, "Fresh baked bread! A dollar a loaf!" from under his awning on Graham Ave. Bon appetit!
