Turchetti’s Salumeria★ ★

Deli

Fans of old-school Italian delis will dig the vibe at George Turkette’s storefront showcase of his expert salamis and deli meats in the heart of Fountain Square. Already well-known at gourmet shops and restaurants for his city ham, pepperoni, and cold-smoked bacon, Turkette lets his playful side run in this lunch spot and happy-hour hangout with windows into the cutting and curing rooms of his growing butcher business. A delectable pastrami Reuben, a homey Indiana ham sandwich, and the Rosino sub with a taste of just about every style of cured meat are solid bets, served on waxed paper–lined trays. But a smash burger (a nod to the famous Workingman’s Friend “deluxe”), as well as a fried turkey leg fit for the State Fair, show Turkette’s skills as short-order cook as well as butcher. Craft beers, wines, and grab-and-go gourmet items make this as much a place to pop in as to linger with the growing crowd of regulars. Lunch and dinner Fri.–Sat.
