    I’ve lived in Seattle for nearly my entire life and have still never been here. I might need to change that, ASAP. :)

      Yes, you must. And I will go with you. Because I’m in love with a sandwich. How sad is that?

    I knew the meat would be incredible, since I’ve had it on enough charcuterie plates in the past few years, but I was delighted to find that the bread was primo too–not always the case in Seattle.

    Next up: gumbo in the CD?

      @Jason – When are you here? Do you have time for Happy Hour?

    Yes, definitely a carnivore’s paradise. I work in pioneer square, but the long lines make it a little tricky to squeeze a lunch at Salume’s into a short lunch hour!

      @Seattleite – I really wish their hours were more flexible. I’d be there all the time!

    Sounds like my kinda place. Wish I had a shop like this nearby. You’re making me want to take a trip to Seattle…and I don’t have enough money right now.

      You should come out to Seattle! These are the months to do it….apparently it’s the only time that the city sees the sun, at least according to a woman I had lunch with today. Seattlites are beginning to scare me with their ominous winter stories (on the plus side, dreary skies mean more time for reading!)

    I arrived at about 4 pm and ate the things that were left from the previous crowds. Luckily I there was still a little leftover sausage mixed with tomato sauce that was oustanding! I need to return sometime to have a full selection of Salumi!

      Ha! I’m glad that even the leftovers made a good sandwich. I keep trying to get back there, but the hours are really a problem. Thanks for letting us know that there’s something left for those of us who arrive at closing time!

    I also lived in Seattle and never went to Salumi. Has it always been this popular or did it gain in popularity when Mario Batali became famous?

      John – Batali’s dad spent 25 years at Boeing so Salumi is his second career. So I don’t think it opened before Mario was already established in New York. Certainly the connection is key to getting people in the door….but the food keeps them coming back.

    I love cured meat and sandwich. The store should have a menu on the front of their store, so those waiting can view what is available.

    My husband loves cured meat too.

    How do they cured their meat?

    Good find! Don’t forget some of the other greats in Pioneer Square. If you’re there on the right Thursday, you can get a free art walk out of it while munching on your Salumi goods. Just a tip from a fellow travel blogger, and native Seattlite (yes it’s a word).
