Pezzello Brothers Fruit & Produce, rife with fresh fruits, crisp vegetables, and a diverse selection of cheeses, cultivates a healthy spread of eats along with a familial staff of knowledgeable personnel. Juicy bits of banana ($.59/lb.), tomatoes ($.99/lb.), or native green and yellow squash ($.89/lb.) can garnish salads or act as a rapt audience during kitchen performances of Titus. Jumbo white eggs ($1.79/lb.) provide the ideal foundation for omelets and the edible suns of a solar system panorama; quarts of half-and-half ($1.89) add creamy strokes to cups of joe. Sandwich stackers can load hoagies and subs with the sharp pungency of several cheeses, including italian, provolone, and imported pecorino romano ($6.99/lb.). Slice a two-pound log of goat cheese ($15.99) into cracker-topping squares, or dig into a three-pound tub of mozzarella balls ($14.99) for bite-size appetizers or afternoon snacks.
The café at Landmark Natural Foods & Cafe is nestled between aisles of fresh, organic produce, spices, and canned goods. Each item at the café is also 100% organic from the breakfast burritos served in multigrain wraps to vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free tomato basil soup.
The Fish Market takes full culinary advantage of Rhode Island's convenient ocean access to craft a sea-centric menu of fresh catches, indulgent pastas, and succulent steaks. The fried seafood platter ($28.95) is composed of fresh cod, calamari, clams, shrimp, and scallops cooked to a perfect tawny brown using only trans-fat- and cholesterol-free oils and accompanied by hand-cut fries and coleslaw. The raw bar brims with oysters (market price) and clams ($1.50 each) on the half shell, as well as massive lobsters (market price) that threaten shucking to scare lunch money from the smaller molluscs. The Fish Market's signature stuffing tops off a dish of deep-sea scallops baked in white wine, butter, and fresh herbs ($21.95) and diners delight in sushi-grade yellow fin tuna ($21.95) grilled to request and painted with a cucumber wasabi sauce. Land lovers can feast on chicken parmesan with fresh herbs, buffalo mozzarella, and house-made marinara ($15.95) or sink teeth into a hand-cut filet mignon ($26.95) paired with potato or rice and a vegetable or hollow broccoli stalk with another filet hidden inside.
