For the last decade, Peck was the only place in town to stock up on the best of the best Italian foodstuffs. Now there’s a new gourmet go-to: a sprawling emporium in the basement level of the Excelsior department store. Choose from thousands of products including candy, cured meats, oils, cheeses, wines, and chocolates from throughout Italy. The selection goes beyond the standard food-hall fare with unusual items such as delicate Uliva olive oil and licorice-, mint-, and raspberry-flavored rice kernels. —Shivani Vora
