The Roman Deli

I grew up on the Eastside of Milwaukee and my best memories are from tromping around to the different shops, bakeries, markets, delis, and parks. 

My favorite deli on the Eastside is Gloriosos, hands-down.
It's an Italian deli--go figure.

My parents would take us through if they needed a few groceries, but usually it was to just have something to do on a Saturday afternoon. 

The aisles were itty bitty and you would brush shoulders with others looking for giardinera, olives, or oil. The best part was buying fresh-cut meats and cheeses and ordering bangin' sandwiches, paninis, and pastas.

Gloriosos is no longer in the small little market I knew as a kid. They are now located across the street in a much larger, more modern building.
I am still partial to the dark lighting and skinny aisles, but along with the new building comes new community outreach as well like cooking classes, wine tastings, and cheese classes.

This is what it looks like now.

Huge meatballs

Olives and oils

MMMmmmMMM sweets..

My favorite!

And this, my friends, is the whole reason I paid the good 'ol deli a visit.

The Roman Deli: genoa salami, capocollo, provolone, roasted onions and red peppers, and balsamic vinegar and oil slapped in between two pieces of artisan bread and panini pressed

It was amazing.
Get one.

If salami and capocollo isn't your thing I'm sure you can find something to hit the spot here.
