Now serving lunch Monday–Thursday, 10am–2pm
We’re bringing back the co-op’s deli service counter and using the hiatus as an opportunity to reinvent our offering. Chef Andy Catalano says he wanted to do some sort of mash up of our past hot bar and taqueria offerings. This week he rolled out a new menu that features bowls of the world including Korean, Indian, Levantine, Mexican and South East Asian.
“I wanted to include some of the really popular items from the hot bar and also be able to eat the food I want to eat with fun energetic flavors,” Chef Andy said.
Everything is made in-house from scratch with 100% organic produce. Our cooks use the same high product standards as the rest of the store. You won’t find things like artificial sweeteners, trans-fats or growth hormones in any of our food.
Made-to-order meals at our service counter (formerly taqueria) were suspended in March; part of a myriad of changes in responses to the pandemic. Our deli focused efforts on grab n’ go sandwiches, salads and heat n’ eat entrees, which are available seven days a week.
Our indoor seating area remains closed; however, outdoor seating is available and there are a number of spots around town for a picnic including Mill Pond Park and the Astoria Riverwalk, just a short walk away.
If all goes well with reopening the service counter, Chef Andy is hoping to expand lunches to seven days in the not too distant future.
