Wanting to create a neighborhood market that represented heritage, family and great food, Bay Ridge-native Louis opened A.L.C Italian Grocery in 2012 – bringing the best of Italy right to Third Avenue. Coluccio Jr. wanted A.L.C. as to be a nod to the historic salumerias that seemed to be all but disappearing. Louis wanted a return to the ‘mom and pop’ shops he grew up with and thought there would be no better place for this than the neighborhood where he was born and raised.
