You might say that Charlie and Anita Augello, proprietors of the E. 48th STREET MARKET, owe it all to family and upbringing as they were both involved with family in either restaurants or deli/bakery operations as youngsters. Wanting to capture the intimate appeal of a neighborhood grocery store for Dunwoody residents, the Market was carefully researched to produce some of the best traditional Tuscan, Piedmontese and Sicilian recipes and staples.Not to be overlooked are the mouth watering meats displayed in the deli case, and the ever-popular Mozzarella in Acqua prepared by Charlie on a regular basis. Here shelves are awash with antipasto items, imported items, pastas, traditional cookies, cakes, candies, fine Italian wines and specialty items.The Augellos prepare their own sausages and fresh pastas, including sheets of lasagna which needn’t be parboiled, but ready to be easily cut to fit any size pan. Irresistible entrees and side dishes are prepared from family recipes and prepared daily in the kitchen.
Hearty sandwiches are served on crusty Italian rolls and the Stoffato, a tasty sandwich filled with layers of Italian meats, cheese, crisp lettuce and topped with their own special sauce is a favorite with many customers. At the Market you can dine ‘al fresco’ in the front patio or everything can be packaged to take with and often times shipped.
