Gazedibles: Charcuterie summer

For those who grew up in the ‘Lunchable age,’ the adult version of the snack tray holds a particular allure.



Patio season is officially here for the next several months. For those who grew up in the ‘Lunchable age,’ the adult version of the snack tray holds a particular allure. Thin slices of chilled salami and capicola next to triangles of gooey brie and swirls of rosy prosciutto, artfully placed perfectly on a fancy wood board, always make one feel a certain level of sophistication. This summer, we invite you to get pinky-up at one of these seven spots with fantastic charcuterie offerings.
