Oh my... those bulk bean bins are killing me. I do love a bean. Maybe I'll drag my mom there tomorrow to check it out...


So much olive oil, so little time.

We made it up there today and are now loaded down with nougat candy and anchovies (for my cousins for Thanksgiving) and I was very happy to find the giant cannellini beans I've been searching for. We also had to buy this stuff ( because my mom remembered my grandmother having it in the house and my mom would sneak one out and nibble on it, which is understandable as it tastes like bubbly lemon candy.


I dunno - the checkout looks a little too "professional": Yesterday, we were at the Butternut street store, and Vince came from behind the deli counter to run the register. Obviously running the register was not his long suit and he explained that the usual checkout girl was "at a baby shower..." We waited patiently and laughed with him and the other customers while he figured it out why the register came up with "$70" for $30 worth of items!

Rather than being an annoyance, it was part of the charm!


It looks like fabulous fun! Maybe a trip to this store will help me to miss my Sicilian family a little less this Thanksgiving.

Hmmm, I hope the new store smells like cheese and olives too.

I stopped by the store today and thought it has lots of potential. The gentleman at the meat counter was very nice and helped me with my selections.

Working in North Syracuse I find it quite wonderful that such a store has opened in that neighbourhood - why not have two locations serving two different areas? Not against the law for Syracuse to grow.

I was wondering if the new store might go to carrying fresh breads as well? That is definitely something I'd like to see there and am also looking forward to fresh pasta selections. Great job!
