Pecks, the neighborhood deli.

Well not exactly. Like Eataly, and Balduccis the foodie markets in Italy and New York there are extremes here. Prices are alti, high. Selections, nothing but the best.

Bringing items home from Peck can cost more than dining at a fashionable ristorante.

My wife purchased about 8 oz of pecorino cheese, and a small container of frutti di mare and the total was 35 Euros. But this is a special place. Prosciutto is on a cutting board and is cut to order. Nothing that is not fresh is sold here.

Unaffordable but delicious. South African lobster tails.

We enjoyed our visit, and the pecorino cheese is delicious. I think the prices at Eataly are much more affordable. Both at the Rome and Milan stores.

When you make your selection,the items are weighed and you are given a label to take to the cashier. Each selection is wrapped like it was purchased from Tiffany’s but in yellow, not in blue.

Tomorrow, the Triennale Milano, the musuem of design.
