Delicacies Gourmet Pizza
Self-described “deli guys,” Jimmy and Rich founded Delicacies Gourmet Pizza more than 20 years ago, and their initial deli renovations in 2008 and pizzeria renovations in June of 2012 included glass display cases, which they line with a dazzling assortment of fresh food. Freshly baked turnovers; simmering trays of bacon, potatoes, and sausage; and baskets of freshly baked cookies, muffins, and breads tempt passer-bys. Chefs bustle about behind the counter, chopping fresh vegetables, meats, and cheeses into custom salads, sandwiches, and paninis—ready for any choice a patron could make. They sizzle pure-beef burgers on open-flame charbroilers before layering patties with bacon, cheese, and bourbon sauce. To craft their brick-oven pizzas, chefs scatter white and whole-wheat crusts with premium toppings such as roasted vegetables, chicken caesar, and pepperoni. Chefs also make specialties such as chicken, sausage, or pepperoni rolls and calzones. To finish off the menu, Delicacies Gourmet Pizza offers customizable pasta and baked dinners with 15 different toppings to choose from. Solidifying the eatery’s reputation for having everything that humans enjoy the taste of, a coffee bar beckons guests to pour themselves cups of hot chocolate or flavored ice coffee.
