The selection of Italian cured meats includes mortadella, prosciutto di Parma, porchetta, speck, and finocchiona.
It’s long been challenging for restaurants, as opposed to clothing stores, to survive on Bleecker Street, but perhaps because newly opened Suprema Provisions has a retail component, it’ll fare better than August, Manatus, and Café Angelique. One-third of Suprema Provisions is a gourmet market, with cookbooks, fancy kitchen tools, and imported Italian ingredients; another third is a salumeria, with cheese and cured meats available to go; and there’s also a wine bar, complete with Italian-leaning snacks that could very well constitute a full-on meal.
There’s talent behind this project: Entrepreneur Stephen Werther, who’s leading the charge on the Bourdain Market, has partnered with sommelier Joshua Wesson. Take a look:
