Good news for those of us who love Caputo’s in Salt Lake- the followingÂ press release and pictures came to meÂ courtesy ofÂ Karen Boe at Boe Marketing. I wanted to share the news with you:
TonyÂ Caputo’s Deli Effortlessly Transforms to EveningÂ Dining
SALTÂ LAKE CITY (February 10, 2010)Â — Tony Caputo’s Market and Deli has a new venture….’Caputo’s By Night.’ TheÂ deli side of the operation serves
an average of 500 lunches per day and has longÂ been a favorite destination
for downtownâ€™s workers and local community members. DueÂ to customer demand for a more casual evening dining experience Caputo’s DeliÂ hours are now expanded for dinner service. Dinner service will be availableÂ Tuesday through Saturday from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m., however, the deli operations areÂ available daily Sunday, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. andÂ Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to closing.
TheÂ popular sandwiches and salads will still be served at night but
‘Caputo’s ByÂ Night’ will also serve many rustic Italian hot dishes using
provincial ItalianÂ ingredients from the award-winning market. Dinner service will still includeÂ white table cloths, servers, and wine and beer, just in a more casualÂ atmosphere. “We are really happy to be getting backÂ to our deli roots. We love fine dining and Tipica was a fun experiment, butÂ customers are asking for a more casual experience,” said Matt Caputo. They nowÂ feature, rustic Italian classics such as Penne Arrabbiata and ChickenÂ Parmigiano. The new menu is full of comforting hot foods and guests can stillÂ get any of the sandwiches, with garnish and pasta salad for $8.95. FiveÂ different Italian classic pasta dishes come with soup or salad and grilledÂ garlic bruschetta for $10.95. Hot dishes like Grilled Halibut Melograno start atÂ $13.95 and come with pasta, soup or salad and grilled garlic bruschetta. ThereÂ are a few appetizers, but these entrees are designed to be full hearty meals.Â Â “OneÂ of our servers recently approached me and said, ‘how can we afford to giveÂ people so much food for so little money?’Â He was right … our food cost is indeedÂ high, but we wanted to be sure to provide a value that would be second to none,”Â continued Caputo.
Tony’sÂ brother Mikey (Uncle Mikey) is the new chef. He has run kitchens
from fineÂ dining operations to diners and everything in between. Mikey
specializes inÂ cooking simple Italian food quickly and consistently. His vast
line cookÂ experience will ensure the kitchen excels no matter how busy
evenings get. MikeyÂ insists all meats and poultry are fresh and cooked to order every time. ForÂ fish, Caputo’s justÂ happens to haveÂ the state’s best fish market right next door. Whole fresh fish are bought andÂ butchered in house daily.
“We’reÂ very excited about our new venture. Our goal is to give people
Italian deliÂ comfort classics in an upscale yet relaxed environment. And with our reasonablyÂ priced wine and beer list, which includes wines by the glass starting at $4 andÂ beers (including three Squatters on tap) starting at $3, customers can get aÂ hearty and comforting meal and a drink for under $15 and rarely over $20,”Â Caputo continued.
Caputo’sÂ By Night is located at 314 West 300 South.Â Reservations are
recommended, especially for weekends.Â Phone: (801) 531-TONY (8669). EveningÂ hours are : Tuesday through Saturday 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.Â DeliÂ operations are available daily Sunday, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday 9:00 a.m.Â – 7:00 p.m. and Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. toÂ closing.
TonyÂ Caputoâ€™s Market & Deli is focused on setting the national standard
forÂ Southern European and Regional American specialty foods. The market
offersÂ America’s largest selection of fine chocolate, over 200 cheeses aged in a properÂ cheese cave, and much more.
At lunchtime, hundreds of eager patrons line upÂ every day for sandwiches, pastas and salads made with the industry’s mostÂ cutting edge ingredients fresh from Caputo’s own market.
Through theÂ years Caputo’s has become an institution, by cultivating a
strong food cultureÂ in the city, state and beyond. Their selection of artisan
products is second toÂ none in the nation. The knowledge and dedication to
excellence of Caputo’s staffÂ is unparalleled. Combined with the industryâ€™s
most cutting edge facilities, theÂ end result is a customer experience more
likened to a gustatory adventure than aÂ mere shopping trip.”
TheÂ National Association for the Specialty Food Trade in 2009 named Tony
Caputo’sÂ Market & Deli “Specialty Retailer of the Year.”Â Salt Lake Magazine
also recently namedÂ Matt Caputo and Caputoâ€™s Deli the “Best Food & Wine
Educator” at its 2009Â Dining Awards.
Here’s the menu FYI and I might add that they have a rather good wine and draft beer offering as well.
