    I always felt Cava had the best charcuterie.

      Nota Bene has amazing charcuterie. I actually prefer it over the Black Hoof.

        Good to know, SWS- have enjoyed several dinners at NB, but have never tried the charcuterie!

        Looks like Marben also offers a charcuterie platter.

          Agreed. The charcuterie at Nota Bene is a very impressive platter.

            Second Nota Bene, and at the risk of sounding like a Parrot I concur that it is superior to Black Hoof.

            Red's Bistro is a favorite for charcuterie. Also, F'Amelia (just opened at Amelia and Parliament) does fantastic stuff as well, and there's no Hoof-ian line ups to endure! (at least not yet...)

              Do you guys know if you can actually buy the charcuterie and bring it home?

                I know you can at Black Hoof (they do catering trays) but I'm not sure about the others.

                    I've purchased it twice for parties and each time it was different. If you want something specific I'm sure you could ask.

                      JennaBean, What was the price range like for the catering trays?

                        I paid around $50 IIRC. I would say that if you're putting it out for app's with other items it would be good for six people. If that's the only thing you're serving I would say it would be good for four people.

                I've always enjoyed the different salumi platters at Romagna Mia. I am particularly partial to the guanciale with honey and pistachios, and felt that the value was much better then at Buca. However, please be aware that I have not been to the restaurant since they reopened as Paganelli's so I would double check to see if it is still on the menu....

                  Had the plate at Loire last night. Pretty good:

                  - Duck prosciutto with melon
                  - Chicken liver mousse
                  - Pork terrine
                  - Pork rillette (awesome)
