This One is for the Meat Eaters
The attraction of this place is so powerful that even though I don't eat meat, I still love to go here. I have been buying their garlic sausage for family barbeques for years, starting in 1969. Chiaramonte Delicatessen is 100 years old this year and the proprietor assures me they are still using the original family recipes for their sausage. The store is a little more chic than it was in the sixties but the important parts of the enterprise are unchanged. This is a one-stop shopping place for a delicious Italian dinner.
