An upcoming deli with a James Beard pedigree will be offering monthly sandwiches to the community as Fatto Con Amore puts the finishing touches on their highly anticipated launch.
News about the shop emerged last summer when Montclair Hospitality Group Partners announced a new sandwich concept at 349 Bloomfield Avenue. The company, founded by Ani Ramen’s Luck Sarabhayavanija, is partnering with James Beard-nominated Chef Robbie Felice to open an authentic Italian sandwich shop that strives to be the embodiment of its translation “made with love.”
The business is slated to open in May near the group’s acclaimed Wafu Italian restaurant pastaRAMEN and to celebrate, Fatto Con Amore is offering a limited quantity of surprise sandwiches to customers. Their first “drop” happened in January and their next is slated for February 18.
Those interested in getting their hands on a Fatto Con Amore preview are encouraged to register for the sandwiches at their website starting on February 15. Pickup is at noon inside pastaRAMEN, with sandwich drop dates for March and April to be announced.
Fatto con Amore will offer hot and cold sandwiches made with breads from the finest local bakeries using imported meats, artisanal cheeses, vinegars, and olive oils from Italy. The shop will additionally sport a market with fresh pantry items personally selected by Chef Felice including meats and cheeses, assorted breads, and pickled or marinated delicacies.
When fully launched, the shop will open at 7am daily for quick grab-and-go breakfast offerings. Fatto Con Amore can be followed on Instagram at their new handle @lovefattoconamore for further updates.
