Salume Beddu at Parker's Table

Marc Sanfilippo closed Salume Beddu’s retail and sandwich shop in Lindenwood Heights last year so that he could focus on his salumi company’s booming, Olivette-based wholesale business. Fortunately, the sandwich shop relocated to the Richmond Heights wine shop and specialty grocery Parker’s Table. The counter at the back of the store features classic Salume Beddu sandwiches, including the muffaletta and the speck with Gruyere and preserved lemon, as well as its hot dog and the Beast (salsiccia with grain mustard and peperonata). There is some seating inside the store, though you can also grab a sandwich and a bottle or two of wine to go.

Hours: 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Saturday (Parker's Table open 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday)

Last year's ranking: Rest of the Best
