Taste Test The Mission's Hotly Anticipated Salumeria This Week!



Salumeria SFOne of the most hotly anticipated (double) restaurant openings of 2012? That'd be the Central Kitchen and Salumeria properties from the dudes behind much-beloved Mission spot, Flour + Water. One spot housing two delicious (and different) restos? You know how we love having options....

And while the sure-to-be-tasty cured-meat and sammie shop Salumeria won't be opening its doors until late April, folks can get a taste test of the yumminess on two occasions this week.

First off, on Wednesday, Flour + Water hosts a pop-up eatery serving utterly yummy $5 antipasti and $10 Italian sandwiches around lunchtime. Then, on Friday night at Clooney's Pub on Valencia Street, folks can shell out $10 for charcuterie plates and other goodies.

Want more than a preview nibble of Salumeria's bites? Check out this Eater preview of the soon-to-open Central Kitchen/Salumeria space at 20th and Florida, which will be presided over by one of R29's Hottest Chefs Under 30, Thomas McNaughton, along with David White, and will be filled with plant life curated by Valencia shop Paxton Gate.

When: Wednesday, February 29, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Friday, March 2, 6:30 to 10 p.m.
