#GoodEats | Porcellino’s

Get into the deliciousness that is the Ham Sammie at Porcellino’s. I FINALLY made my way over to the Cafe/Butcher shop for a quick meeting and I honestly don’t know why its taken me so long to get over there. I’ve heard (and seen on IG!) nothing but rave reviews since they opened in December 2014, so I was excited when it was suggested as the meeting ground.

Founded by Chefs Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman, Porcellino’s is a space that not only offers charcuterie, but it’s a cool little cafe that has a pretty sweet selection of pastries, pastas, and other dishes that you can indulge in for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (on-site or at home).

The first time I visit an eatery, I always want to pick the “right” dish, so I like to find out what the waiter’s faves are and pick from there. I decided on the Ham Sammie (city ham, pickled fennel, arugula, dijon mustard, fried egg, open face house white bread) with a side of  Squash + Zucchini (with tomato jam, basil pesto, peanut crispies) and Sicilian blood orange tea.

The atmosphere has a neighborly, retro feel to it, like you’re in a cafe or diner from 50s/60s, so whether you’re dashing in for a quick grab + go breakfast or stopping by for a bite to eat with your family, the open yet intimate floor plan gives off a sense of community and makes you want to just slow down and indulge, even if just for a minute.
