The team behind flour + water has had a busy month. First, it was the opening of Central Kitchen. And now is the group’s third outpost, Salumeria, which opened to lines of lots of hungry patrons this week.
Salumeria is headed by chefs Thomas McNaughton and Matthew Sigler, who just recently won the Cochon 555 event at the Fairmont. The casual deli serves up sandwiches, salads and sides along with an abundance of meats, cheeses, bread and other goods for sale.
The opening menu featured five sandwiches between $9-12: the King Trumpet, Toscano, Roast Beef, Duck Confit and Spit Roasted Leg of Lamb. Pastries in the morning are provided by McNaughton’s longtime friend Belinda Leong. There is also a list an antipasti, salads and meat and cheese boards, including a cool picnic plate.
It’s a bit of an all-in-one, one stop shopping spot as well with plenty of different meats, cheeses and other condiments. Plus, the meat is cured in-house. All the menu items are expertly prepared behind the small counter and although the line may be long, it goes fairly quickly. Tables are available in the courtyard space, which Salumeria shares with Central Kitchen.
Beer and wine are also available for that “long” lunch break. For now, Salumeria will be open from 9-5 with hours eventually expanding to 8:00 p.m. Another successful venture that is sure to bring in the masses.
Salumeria is located at the corner of 3000 20th Street at the corner of 20th and Florida.
