Some doors are fancy or architecturally engaging, but this door is pretty commercial and rather ordinary.
Behind this simple door though are items that can cause your taste buds to cross over into the land of deliciousness. This is Micucci Grocery in Portland, Maine. Micucci’s is known in the area for its fine Italian groceries, deli, and bakery items.
For my family, it is known for their Sicilian slabs of pizza with delicious soft crust, a sweet tomato sauce, and a simple cheese topping.
We visited Portland yesterday and came away with a slab for dinner, slabs for the freezer, and we also delivered to a friend in Portsmouth. Hey, we know good pizza, are willing to share, and it sure brought a smile to his face.
If you are ever in the Portland area and want to enjoy a slab of Sicilian pizza, this is your destination. After you park your car in their small private lot (yes, parking is not an issue) glance at the building next door that is adorned with this beautiful mural.
A trip to Micucci’s is a gastronomical delight with a serving of art on the side.
If you’re going to Micucci’s, remember you might as well get a loaf of Luna bread when you’re done boxing your slabs. Then stop at the freezer section and pick up a pint of that sweet red sauce, some pasta, and their home-made meatballs to go with it. And as you head to the checker, you almost pass by the deli counter where there is some delicious looking pepperoni and smoked mozzarella cheese. Well, I might as well make my trip worth while. 🙂
