Well folks, it’s a sad day over in Mongoose Junction – Deli Grotto has closed its doors for good. Fortunately, however, it will open under new ownership October 1. And from what we hear, it’s going to be pretty delicious.
For those of you on island over the past few days, you may have noticed a sign over at Deli Grotto stating that it’s closed for the month of September. We found that to be a tad odd considering we were told that Deli Grotto planned to stay open for the season, so we decided to do some digging.
We learned that a local couple will soon take over the space and that it will remain a deli. They’re still in the process of clearing the deli’s new name, so we agreed to keep some of the details to ourselves for a bit. But I have to admit, as sad as I am to see Deli Grotto go (their turkey artichoke panini was my absolute favorite!), I believe the new owners will do an excellent job.
Stay tuned for more details in the upcoming weeks… In the meantime, if you’re looking to get your sandwich fix or perhaps grab a bite to go, Sam & Jack’s in the Marketplace and Baked in the Sun plan to remain open throughout low season.
