Walla Walla If you feel a craving for capicola or plan to munch on mortadella you may want to get your fix this weekend at Salumiere Cesario.
The downtown gourmet grocer is preparing for a move next week to its new location on Main Street.
Owners Damon and Colby Burke plan to be closed Monday through Wednesday of next week to make the physical move from Second Avenue to 12 E. Main St., the former site of Romanza.
Barring any unforeseen challenges, the new spot will be open Thursday. In the meantime, customers are encouraged to stock up on items they might need this weekend.
Those who follow the business online or have been strolling by the new spot have likely been keeping up with progress. The new space represents an expansion in every way — not only with more square-footage but also in capability to offer more menu items, beer, wines, cheeses, charcuterie and specialty items.
A 600-square-foot kitchen has been constructed in the space, as has an eight-foot deli case to provide a “wall of meat.” The larger cheese closet promises plenty of room for a larger inventory of cheeses, and one of the latest updates — outdoor railings — provides a seating area for up to 20 guests.
Work on the project has been done in partnerships with Ketelson Construction, Grassi Refrigeration, Chris Johnson Plumbing, K&L Painting and Exemplar Real Estate.
