Performance Eats, on the Upper West Side

Salumeria Rosi, Upper West Side
Photo by myself on the Upper West Side, around 73rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue (10th Avenue).

Salumeria Rosi is a relatively new restaurant on the Upper West Side. A well-appointed prep counter resembled performance art. In the window are boxes of cooked sausage from Modena and slow-roasted pork loin. (Sorry for the reflection, there were bright lights located across the street).

Designed to look like a traditional salami shop found on any street corner in Italy, Salumeria serves up tasty items like pork belly, nearly 20 aged salamis and a complete cheese menu. How can you not eat meats without cheese?

The family-based business originated in Parma, Italy, before setting up shop in Manhattan. The restaurant cures many of its own meats, and imports the rest from overseas.

Judging from what looked like a full house on Tuesday night, the food must be very good. For a survey of menus and history, click here.

Ohhh! That would be so tempting to me — I love sausages and cheeses, though I'm supposed to avoid both now!

That looks like a yummy place to stop for some great take home items! That guy seems to be working hard at the counter.
