Pope Greenwich Village Italian Sub Sandwich


Mickey Rourke and Eric Roberts are coming out of Joe's Dairy in Greenwich Village
New York. In the movie The Pope of Greenwich Village this little Italian Cheese Store that
specializes in fresh homemade Mozzarella which is along with fresh made Italian Sausages precious commodities in the Italian-American Enclave. This real life Italian Cheese Shop was fictionalized as 
Jimmy The Cheeseman's Shop in the Pope of Greenwich Village which starred Mickey Rourke as Charlie Morant, and Eric Roberts as his cousin Paulie. Here we find Charlie and Paulie going into the cheese shop so Paulie can buy some fresh Mozzarella, Salami, and Prosciutto to make an Italian Sandwich. They then go next door to the real life Zampiere's Bakery which operated two shops in Greenwich Village for years, providing the local Italians with fresh baked Italian Bread and Pastries. Sadly these two wonderful establishments no longer exist, but thanks to this wonderful movie based on the book Pope of Greenwich Village by Vincent Patrick who does a great job capturing some real Greenwich Village Village character.
