Stopped by Sweet Science for a coffee this morning in NoMa, and saw this on the neighboring storefront.
New DC-Made charcuterie with brick and mortar store on Georgia Ave. Has anyone been?
I recently hosted a big party and ordered about 5 pounds of charcuterie from Red Apron in Union Market. I had never tried their products before and had never even looked closely at them, either. I called them up and they sent me a list of their products, and I just ordered from it blind. Everything was excellent. I ordered coppa, lomo, fennel/verbena salami, sopressa, mortadella prato, duck rillettes, wild boar paté and paté de campagne. A good friend who, I think, smears pork fat on his nipples in his private moments said the wild boar paté changed his life. Everything was made to a high standard and it was gratifying to see an American (and local!) producer turn out such beautiful examples of these classic European salumi. Their service was also great. Rachel helped me with the list and got my order all ready at short notice, and everything was sliced thinly and carefully. The resulting charcuterie board that I was able to assemble was a big hit at my party. This experience restored my gratitude for the charcuterie trend, which at restaurants can sometimes get a bit ridiculous.
http://www.salumenewyork.com/menu.pdf We were meeting a friend at the Warren/Chambers St. dog run to let the dogs play and catch up and promised to bring lunch. The hotel we were staying at- Tribeca Grand- had a guide to the area and recommended this place. Having missed out on Salume in Seattle due to timing, I owed my husband some really good cured meat. This shop is not affiliated with the Seattle outpost, but is none the less a very authentic place to get a perfect sandwich. They also have some salads and a nice little coffee set up with really good doughnuts. We had the lemon glazed cake doughnut and walnut cream filled doughnut, both were really good. But the sandwiches... seriously why does someone not do this in DC? We had four of the Salume Panini's. These are not your typical pressed sandwiches, but traditional Italian panini, on really good Italian style rolls. COLUMBUS CRESPONE • 11 Caciocavallo, Arugula, Horseradish Sauce, Olive Oil FRA’ MANI SOPPRESSATA • 12 Apricot, Cardamaro, Grana Padano, Pistachio Oil, Oregano, Pepper MORTADELLA • 11 Cave Aged Salva Cremasco, Gherkins, Il Moscato Di Nonino Grappa, Watercress BRESAOLA• 12 Pecorino Paglia E Fieno, Arugula, Colatura, Meyer Lemo I didn't get to have any of the Columbus Crespone as it was all Hubby's but my friend and I went halfsies on the sopressata which was just amazingly good, the meat and cheese were just such good quality and the condiments really complimented it well, but there weren't a ton of them, they weren't slopped on it was just delicately composed to be a really good sandwich. We also split the bresola, which had a nice contract between meat, cheese, lemon that made it really fresh. I also had a bit of the mortadella, which was also good, but not as good as the other two. Anyway this place is a great stop for a really well composed sandwich for either eat in or take out. Right near all the fun boutiques of soho. And if you are with a dog near a good amount of dog friendly parks/runs.
