For a traditional-style deli experience, Salumi Artisan Cured Meats offers a ton of different meats that are cured on site, as well as fresh artisan bread. There’s a reason people start to line up at this place an hour before it opens: at Salumi, you are able to purchase salami and cured meats that are whole or sliced, in various styles of sandwiches, and in lots of other specials.

Rain Shadow Meats Squared is a legitimate butcher shop that doubles as a deli. This allows them to showcase their fantastic selection of meats, all of which are derived from local farms. The full service butchery carves up a wide variety of delicious meats, including pork loin, belly, and shoulder, and it serves wine and beer along with a solid selection of cheeses.

Tat’s Delicatessen is authentically East Coast. It serves favorites like corned beef, pastrami, and Philly cheesesteaks with Cheese Whiz, just like the classics you’ll have a hard time finding outside of Philadelphia. This neighborhood staple offers heaping portions and features breads made in local bakeries.
