The Ferrarini Family, world famous for their cured meats, cheeses and pasta, opened Ferrarini Deli, their first deli and cafe, late last month in Beverly Hills. It took no less than two years and several contractors, architecture firms, developers and rounds of capital to finish the tiny space. Judging from the regular foot traffic that the place is getting, it was worth it.
General Manager Paul Daley says that the neighborhood response has been welcoming, and that people know and appreciate the quality of the product. Ferrarini has been producing cured meats and fine deli products since the 1950s. They own the land that their cattle graze upon and harvest their own semolina wheat. The company has small shops throughout Italy, Europe, and in Japan. This is the brand's first American outpost, and it's also the brand's first deli and cafe. The plan for this location is to serve as a model for future locations in other cities in the U.S. and abroad.
Ferrarini Deli on Brighton Way serves breakfast pastries, a full espresso menu, sandwiches, salads and desserts. Along the walls are the brand's well known pastas, sauces and cured meats. A case for cheeses and packaged salami fills the front. Open now from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Ferrarini hopes to soon serve wine and beer along with heartier savory items.
