zanottos.jpgMonths after having to shutter it’s downtown San Jose grocery store due to the economy and stiff competition from The Market, local grocer Zanotto’s has once again risen from the ashes like a phoenix to re-open Zanotto’s Express on First Street. The new Zanotto’s does what they’ve always done best – offer a quick, healthy, and delicious lunch or dinner for local workers and residents. There is a huge refrigerator with pre-made sandwiches (I had a great prosciutto panini the other day – delicious!) and 15+ pre-made salads. All their pre-made offerings are made fresh daily at their Rose Garden location. They also offer several Grab-and-Go pre-made meal selections such as pastas, twice-baked potatoes, burritos – perfect for the SJSU student or high-rise resident who is looking for a quick, homemade meal. Two fresh soups are available daily. The focal point of the new space is the deli counter where you can build your own sandwich. There are plenty of meat, cheese, and condiment options to please even the most discerning palate. Round out your meal with plenty of unique beverages (including a nice selection of local wines) and delicious sweet treats. You’ll also find several specialty Italian foods such as olive oil, gourmet cheeses and pasta. There is plenty of seating both indoors and out. So next time you’re craving a tasty sandwich, stop by Zanotto’s – you’ll be glad you did.
