The new Continental Deli by the guys behind Porteño and Bodega (Joe Valore and Elvis Abrahanowicz) is now open and pretty much one of the best hot spots in the innerwest and an incredible spot to pop in for daytime drinking (Yes, day time drinking), delicious sandwiches, tinned fish on bread, cheeses, charcuterie selections, cocktails and a extensive deli selection. Open from 11-10, the new Continental impresses with an elegant marble counter and flawless fitout. Continental Deli is a wonderful celebration of the best in deli eats and drinks with a great vibe and that innerwest zeitgeist. The bistro component is set to open a bit later but what is here is amazing. Get in before word gets out and this is the hottest venue in the innerwest.
A couple of drinks – one of the things we’re loving? Daytime barhopping goodness. They have a robust wine list, cocktail and then there’s house made limoncello. The Martini comes from a cute can and its this attention to detail which appeals. Limoncello fizz also a winner. Delicious with the eats.
Selection of deli eats you can buy – there’s pepe saya butter, plenty of cured meats, continental deli branded canned good. We loved this place. Its amazing. And yes, there’s a continental deli caramel spread. This is a love affair in its infancy.
Continental Deli adds to the growing sophistication and foodscene in the Newtown/Enmore area and does it with much panache. We can already tell that this is going to be a monster hit. Its a bit NYC and the beauty of it all is the attention to detail here. You’ll walk in, marvel and have the best time. The fitout is amazing, the eats is amazing and this wonderful new addition to the area has won us over. A new favourite. Get in
