After 31 years working at Boeing, Armandino Batali (father of superstar chef Mario) opened this humble salumi shop in 1999 in the Pioneer Square neighborhood. His daughter, Gina Batali, and her husband, Brian D’Amato, now run the operation, and the meats are as terrific as ever—including the phenomenal meatballs. The pair use nonna Batali’s recipe for Leonetta’s Meatball Sandwich, made with tender pork meatballs starring braised shredded pork necks and served in a hero topped with tomato sauce and melted provolone. salumicuredmeats.com
