A DELI TRADITION
The narrative of my life is shaped by food. When I was growing up in New Jersey, Rudy’s was absolutely the best place to get a slice. And Vito’s Deli made the best sandwiches.
I think of Vito’s in preparing for Salt & Grinder. I’ll roast and cure on site, everything sliced to order, never ahead of time (too dry) — meat grazed across a slicer at the final minute, and piled on the bread in lazy rivers.
