Products We're Featuring
Paddlefish Roe: A relatively new treat from the south harvested from the rivers and deltas with care, these pearls of briny flavor accompany any creamy cheese and or cracker.
Smoked Trout Roe: Although technically not caviar, these delicious eggs deserve the title. Lightly smoked for your enjoyment. A great introduction to fishy flavor town.
Smoked Salmon Roe: Our favorite roe for beginners. If you haven’t yet dipped your toe into the caviar pool, here’s your chance without breaking the bank. Slightly smoky, it instantly reminds us of a classic smoked salmon with cream cheese.
Kaluga Caviar: Domestic elegance at its finest. A hybrid of two different Russian sturgeon. Legally the closest thing you can get to beluga caviar in the States.
Warm up your winter months with this tasty, spicy, traditionally made sopressata salami from our friends in Chicago at ‘Nduja Artisans. Using the best humanely raised pork they can find and imported Calabrian chilies, it has a taste that both warms your heart and reminds you of warm days in southern Italy.
This is the most tender and luscious of any bacon we have ever tried. And the smoke and fat combination of this bacon is over the top! Fantastic by itself or rendered down and added to a sauce. It would make the most amazing pasta carbonara!

Our Favorite Producers
All Natural Fabrique Délices Pâtés & Mousse. The most traditionally made and flavorful line of pâtés we’ve tasted in the U.S. using only antibiotic- & hormone-free meat, without preservatives, artificial ingredients or nitrites. Excellent with cornichons and Dijon mustard on Zingerman’s Bakehouse breads!
Prosciutto di Parma can only be produced from Italian-born and bred pigs raised according to the highest standards, on which they are monitored, inspected and traced. The dry, aromatic breezes from the Apennine Mountains impart a delicate, sweet flavor into the ham that keeps you wanting more. Hand selected for the Deli, our Prosciutto di Parma is aged a bit extra than the standard and we carry various ages to appeal to all palates. Ask for a taste, and take home an ounce or two.
Hailing from Iowa, Herb & Kathy Eckhouse’s pork house produces the most amazing cured meats with exceptional quality & flavor. See what all the fuss is about –ask for a taste!
We make mozzarella from cow’s milk curd from BelGioioso every morning. The extremely fresh, milky, sublime flavor is exceptional from other store-bought mozzarella. Try their fresh mozzarella smoked over natural hickory embers on the #32 Big Al’s Saturday Night Special and their punchy provolone, aged a minimum of 60 days, on the #26 Frank & Kathy’s Half-Italian Sub or take some home by the pound.
From a Single-Estate in Greece, these hand-picked organic olives are plump, sweetly briny and buttery. We also sell pitted Kalamata olives by the pound.
