Hands are nature's silverware—evidenced by early man's serrated pointer finger and forked thumb. Get back to your ancestral roots in sophisticated, handfed fashion with today's deal: for $7, you get $15 worth of hearty sandwiches, fresh salads, and other speedy eats at Cucina Deli. Located just north of South Temple, the quick eatery is open daily.
Easily transportable, sandwiches are the ideal lunchtime meal. You get a variety of food groups in every bite without annoying utensil requirements, prep work, or cleanup. Cucina's massive sandwiches, heaping with mounds of fresh-sliced meats and fresh veggies, are nearly too large to hover mouths around. Try the caprese, stacked high with fresh mozzarella, ripe tomato slices, basil, greens, and a drizzle of balsamic on fluffy foccacia, or opt for the warm meatloaf middle on a kaiser roll. All specialty sandwiches are served whole and are priced at $7.59. Deli sandwiches feature more-traditional brown-bag grub dressed with fancy drizzles such as garlic-artichoke aioli and chipotle mayo (half for $3.59, whole for $6.79). Fork fans will appreciate Cucina's inventive specialty salads ($8.49 each), including Thai beef marinated in Asian ginger sauce atop a bed of greens, creamy cheese tortellini with salmon, veggies, and chèvre dressing, and refreshing shrimp salad with fresh vegetables and greens.
Complimentary WiFi, umbrella-strewn patio seating, and a central location near the University of Utah, hospitals, and the Avenues make Cucina's a smart stop for a speedy savory. Open weekdays as early as 7 a.m., the deli makes for an ideal pre-work cup of coffee. Get this Groupon to freshen up stale lunch routines, as a quick dinner alternative, or to thoughtfully nosh outdoors.
- I love the fact that there is always something new to try and the staff is helpful with suggestions at lunch time. We bring staff from the office all the time and although the line is long, we have always had great experiences. – mrhoades, Citysearch
