This month's D Magazine has a piece on, which is a small food market near the Galleria. We went this past Saturday and I highly recommend it. They have a number of Italian items such as pasta, prosciutto (San Daniele is $14/pound vs. $22/pound at Central Market per the article), olive oils, balsamic vinegar, pancetta, coppa, bresaola, etc.; teas, different kinds of salts, some Asian items, caviar, foie gras, olives, a number of cheeses, chocolate, truffle items (they can also order fresh truffles for you), jams, jellies, purees and a few other things. The prices seem pretty reasonable and the people there are pretty friendly and helpful. They recommended we try the Salsa Tartufata, which is very finely chopped mushrooms in white truffle oil. They advised us to take some butter, heavy cream, parmesean cheese and half the jar of the Salsa Tartufata and cook it together in a pot and then add our pasta (we used fettucine) and it was so delicious. This past Saturday they had an olive oil tasting and I bought the Riviera Ligure, which is really light and great with bread. Every Saturday they have a tasting, the next two are Flavors of Spain (olives. cheeses, chorizo, serrano ham) and on the 7th it's Truffles (we'll be back for this one). Their website has directions, it's located on McEwen Road off of Midway,one block north of 635 behind the Best Buy.
