The Rare Salumi VIP “Backroom Lunch"

Salumi, the tiny storefront and deli in Pioneer Square, is probably one of the most well-known restaurants in Seattle. That could be because their house-cured meats are out-of-this-world good, or because it’s run by a family with the last name of Batali (as in Mario).

The sandwiches are justifiably amazing, but Salumi also offers a more private, sit-down experience — as long as you have a dozen friends willing to join you and are proactive enough to book two months in advance. This is the Salumi “backroom lunch”, a private five-course meal for 10 people served in the small backroom of the restaurant. It’s only offered on ( Wednesdays and Thursdays) , and for $65 per person/Includes tax and tip. Chef Bryan cooks whatever he’s feeling that’s fresh. You just sit back and eat for three hours. Only a lucky few has experienced this special event.

Wine bottles in hand, you will breeze past the hungry lineup for the sandwich counter and settle at our reserved table in the backroom.

The lunch will last for 2-3 hours, so please be prepared. If you can't get that time off work, please don't RSVP. Payment will be via Paypal:

I will be needing payment for the lunch via paypal to secure your spot.

    Stretchy pants were in order after we left that back room, sated and stuffed with excellent foods expertly prepared by Bryan. It was a great way to spend several hours :)

    You are NOT confirmed for this event unless you PRE-PAY.
    RSVPing alone does not hold a spot for you.
    I will be charged for any empty seats.

      Please disregard my note from earlier. I'm going to soldier on for tomorrow because I'm feeling better.

    If anyone is on the fence, please RSVP no soon. It's very hard for waitlisters to join if you cancel even hours before the Meetup. Thank you.

    I've attended a number of the Salumi lunches and with the long waiting list, thought I would give my place in line for someone to try out the lunch for the first time. Have fun!
