In need of last minute and provisions for your New Year’s Celebration? We can help with our wonderful selection of cheese, charcuterie, breads and crackers for your buffet table. We can also create beautiful deli platters for your party and don’t forget our fine selection wine and bubbly! Panettone, turrone and specialty chocolates are still available, and our bulk spice jars are well-stocked. And why not grab a sandwich or a hot bowl of soup for lunch? We’ll be open until 3pm on New Year’s Eve.

Wishing all of our customers and friends a very happy and safe New Year.
