Hearing about Treehaus’ new Rutgers grease truck sandwich this week gave us a few hunger pangs for the old Papa Perrone truck, which used to park on 55th btw. Madison and 5th. If you miss them too you’ll be happy to know that Papa Perrone has popped up in brick and mortar form in the St. George area ofn Staten Island at 469 St. Marks Place serving flavored riceballs and a variety of dipping sauce as well as other specialty items. Apparently it’s 10 min from the ferry and down the block from where they are building the new court house. I’m not sure if we miss them that much, but if you live on the island or head out there on the weekends you’ll be excited to know you can some riceball love from an old friend.
