New Deli proposed for East Arlington

mangotango Jan 25, 2013 02:04 PM

Just heard the news:


I'm hoping they use quality ingredients, locally sourced products (e.g. Iggy's Bread or their own, Verrill Farm produce), and have good seating with Wifi!

My favorite sandwich shop in on Martha's Vineyard (they make their own bread) is Humphrey's.... just dreaming that something similar will open here!

Keeping my fingers crossed

    If that Arlington Patch post was submitted at 2:50pm today, the CH openings thread beat it. :-)

      That would be fantastic! There are lots of sub shops in Arlington, so I hope this deli has a slightly different twist.

        What non pizza sub shops are in Arlington?

          Yeah, that's what I mean -- mainly pizza shops that sell subs. There is also D'Agostino's Deli for subs, and A&A as well!

            Boyle's Market is another that is primarily subs and as far as I know no pizza (although they have daily American and Italian hot specials). They also have a small selection of decent quality Italian cold cuts -- not the wider selection of Maria's over the line in Somerville before it got damaged in the fire, but probably the best around. I started to write up some of the places I have shopped in the general area when replying above, but never got finished.

            The sign at Anthony's definitely suggested it would be a market, not just a sub shop and its a pretty large space. I also was assuming that it would probably have a Greek bent, but that could mean a few things.
