Assemble a complete meal with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of gourmet goods at The Market at Papi's in Richmond. Imported cheeses, olive oils, artisan meats, fresh pasta, and on-site prepared deli selections make The Market at Papi's popular with established gourmands and curious onlookers alike. Nab a bottle of imported olive oil ($6.99+) or snag a specialty three-course meal to go ($19.95 per person) from the deli. Stocked with Italian-centric eats, the little market with the sunshine-yellow walls beckons hungry noshers to ascend on plump clouds of gnocchi into foodie heaven.
When you walk into Papi's Market, you might catch the aroma of lamb slowly braising with oregano and garlic or the sweet fragrance of a chocolate olive-oil cake baking in Chef Ken Iaci's oven. Iaci and co-proprietor Claudette Piacenza can point you in the direction of imported Italian pastas, olives, and artisan cheeses to take home, as well as fresh Italian meats, baked goods, and desserts that Chef Iaci prepares every day. While he's finishing your carryout order, explore gift baskets brimming with cold-pressed and organic olive oils ideal for mixing into marinades or greasing the wheels of a rusty bread truck.
The cozy shop has a small number of tables where diners can sample their foodstuffs, and where Chef Iaci hosts private dinners for 8–10 people. He also provides catering services for groups of 25–250.
