“the sandwiches are fantastic.”
“There is ALWAYS a line in there, but the service is excellent and fast.”
“Everything is always fresh and you just cannot beat the price.”
Every inch counts in this tiny Italian market and deli with one of the best butcher counters in town..
This little River West market comprises three narrow, packed aisles, all leading to the busy butcher and deli counters in back. A single manual cash register sits opposite a small fresh produce section near the entrance, and refrigerators line one wall. The clientele is a mix of long-time neighborhood folks and the condo-dwellers currently gentrifying the area.
There's an extensive, well-priced selection of olive oil, pasta, sauces, and other Italian and Mediterranean imports. In dairy, grocery, and
sundries they cover all the bases, though the selection is cramped by space limitations. The deli does a thriving sub trade, employing a small army of sandwich-makers at lunchtime; imported sausage, cheeses, and olives round out the deli case. The diminutive butcher counter houses a full selection of meat and poultry with great prices. Tasty Italian beef and sausage, veggies giardiniera, tomato sauce, and white beans and escarole are all made fresh in-house.
Bari Foods - Best Italian Sub Anywhere. This old-school Italian deli and grocery store serves up some tasty sandwiches. The Italian sub (capicola, mortadella, Genoa salami, provolone, lettuce, tomato, seasoned oil and home-made giardiniera) is a fan favorite and it's the best I've ever tasted. Choose from mild, medium or hot versions. And at $4 for a 9-inch, $5 for a 12-inch you won't quibble about the price either.
