Delicatessen Place

The building that houses Delicatessen Place used to be a shoe repair shop, and with their “Cordonnerie Derby” sign and green facade, is almost impossible to miss. The inside has exposed concrete, wooden walls, and Edison bulbs dangling over the counter, and you should get a glass of whatever red or white is open at the time—most likely it’ll be French and natural. For a bottle, pop next door into the wine shop, and they’ll help you pick one, cork it, and send you back to the bar (or the sidewalk) to enjoy it. The snacky food—think oeufs mimosa, pois gourmand (a plate of stewed peas), or just-sliced spicy chorizo—is displayed buffet-style, and served when he has a moment to get to you.
