Salumi, Seattle, Washington

309 Third Avenue South
Seattle , Washington
Tel: 206 621 8772's insider take:

Salumi devotees are a passionate bunch, lining up outside this closet-size Italian eatery near Pioneer Square every afternoon, swooning over their favorite house-cured salami sandwiches. Don't be intimidated by the wait—the line moves fast, and the hearty fare is well worth it (the owner is Armandino Batali, father of Mario). The friendly counter staff will help you choose from the 15 different salami varieties, offering little samples even when the place is really jumping. Everyone's favorite seems to be the Finocchiona: an intense mix of cracked fennel seeds, white pepper, and a bit of curry powder. Lunch only.
