Flushing-native rapper Action Bronson visited a popular Whitestone delicatessen for an upcoming episode of his food-centric television show.

The chef-turned-rapper stopped by Tony’s Beechhurst Deli to film for his show “F***, That’s Delicious”* — a food and travel series which airs on television network VICELAND. The episode, titled “A New York Winter Fling,” is set to air on Thursday, Jan. 5, at 10 p.m.


A preview of the episode on the rapper’s Instagram shows himself — real name Arian Asllani — and friends talking with owners and staff while feasting on a variety of Italian-American eats offered at the Whitestone deli.

“Tony’s Beechhurst is the Italian-American deli on steroids,” Bronson said in the clip.

A local favorite, Tony’s Beechhurst Deli was established in 1992 and has a near-perfect rating on Yelp and dozens of positive reviews. The family-run eatery features an extensive menu of meats, cheese, salads, sandwiches, paninis, pastas, soups and more.

In the promo video, the rapper is seen trying sandwiches, cheeses and penne alla vodka, which owner and chef Josephine Polito says she has been making for 23 years.
