Review: The Savory Gourmet

A true New-York style deli and market? In the heart of Alpharetta? I wouldn’t have believed it until I saw it…and then I saw it, I tasted it and then I kept going back to it! The Savory Gourmet is next door to Coalition Food and Beverage on Milton Avenue and is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 – 7:00 and Sunday and Monday from 11:00 – 3:00.

Roasted Vegetable Sandwich

We made a trip to The Savory Gourmet for lunch with the family a couple of weeks ago. All of us ordered different things and we enjoyed them all, but the highlights were the meatball sandwich and the Reuben! Let me say this, Dad used to own restaurants in New Jersey back in the 80s before he and Mom moved down to Georgia. In his words “I haven’t had a Reuben like this since 1985.” Heck, he even remembered the restaurant where he had enjoyed his last New-York Reuben that hit the spot!

That HUGE Reuben

The Reuben is stacked high with corned beef, sauerkraut and that dressing goodness on two slices of good-looking Rye bread. The Meatball Sandwich, on the other hand, comes in a soft baguette with meatballs that are a bit crunchy on the outside but perfectly soft on the inside, gooey cheese, and fresh marinara! We also ordered the Chicken Parm Sandwich which is good, and the Roasted Vegetable Sandwich which could use a greater variety of vegetables.

In addition to lunch, The Savory Gourmet also has ready-to-go and ready-to-cook meals for pick-up. We need to raid that fridge soon! Finally, what is a New-York deli without Proscuitto? Adam Hydzu, the Partner and Chef of this Gem, was gracious enough to let us taste their freshly sliced Proscuitto. There’s one thing that’s for sure – I’m no longer going to Whole Foods every Christmas for my Charcuterie plate. That meat was melt-in-your-mouth delicious!

Long story short, go to The Savory Gourmet Market. You won’t regret it!

    This is our new favorite place.
    Great sandwiches and the best pizza around! They actually get the crust from Italy. Everyone is so nice. They are only open a few months and we have been in there so many times because everything we get is awesome and We want to keep coming back and trying all the different things on their menu. They are always adding more delicious items!
    The portions are generous and everything is fresh.
    The menu is like something you would see in New York New Jersey or South Florida. Pastrami Sandwiches, Italian sandwiches, salads ( and even market items that include Pastosa type Ravioli/Pasta.
    Everyone who works there is professional, caring and experienced in the service industry.
    We definitely are impressed and are so happy they are part of our downtown community.

    We had lunch there today and our sandwiches were delicious! We took half home, so looking forward to lunch tomorrow! We will be back soon to order Italian lunch meats and cheese. The store reminds me of the great small Italian delis found up North. So glad it’s here.
