Alimentari, the new specialty store and deli from the team behind Williamson Street restaurant A Pig in a Fur Coat, celebrated its grand opening Tuesday. Located at 306 S. Brearly St.— just a minute walk from A Pig in Fur Coat— Alimentari is a European-style market selling select specialty items like meats, cheeses, fresh and dried pasta, olive oil, wine, amaro and gelato. “If you come to us we will help you get the products to make an excellent meal at home from start to finish,” says co-owner Bonnie Arent.

Daniel Bonanno, co-owner and head chef at A Pig in a Fur Coat, says he wants to focus on products Madison hasn’t necessarily had access to before like fresh pasta made daily (Tuesday’s offerings included bucatini and rigatoni) and a selection of dried pastas from Calabria, the region of Italy where Bonanno’s family hails from. Bonanno is also excited about Alimentari’s selection of meats, including a prosciutto from Proscuitto di San Daniele that is aged for 24 months.
