What to Eat at Nick Varano’s Famous Deli

Nick Varano’s Famous Deli, the deli from Strega owner Nick Varano, has opened in the old Martignetti’s space in the North End. The menu items (deli sandwiches, salads) are basic enough, but the listings concept seems inspired by Mr. Bartley’s Burger Cottage: every sandwich is listed as the favorite of a celebrity (i.e. “Famous Smoked Turkey: Old Blue Eyes Loved This”). Seeing as Frank Sinatra died eleven years before the deli’s opening, this seems dubious, but we appreciate the effort at entertainment. Click through for the full menu.
