Chicest Deli: Volpetti, Rome, Italy

Volpetti, Rome

Now, I agree wholeheartedly that a deli is probably far from something one would normally consider “chic,” but hear me out. On a recent trip to Rome, I stumbled upon this foodie’s treasure trove. Packed with sausages as thick as my arm, jars of exotically colored peppers and pastes, golden loaves of crusty warm bread and wine fit for a picnic of the gods, Volpetti made my mouth water at first sight. Though it contained the typical sides of pork and hunks of other less identifiable animals in typical deli fashion, leave it to the Italians to make this carnivore’s emporium look like a veritable work of art.
