A new, casual Italian deli counter is now assembling sandwiches in downtown Detroit. Located on Washington Boulevard next to The Last Tangle hair salon, La Pecora Nera, quietly debuted for lunch today.
David Ayyash of the nearby restaurant walkup window, Chickpea in the D, and Zach Kostegian are behind the shop whose name translates to “The Black Sheep”, according to WDIV.
The restaurant serves sandwiches made with fresh sliced meats and veggies on soft Italian rolls, alongside salads, espresso drinks, and gelato. Patrons can grab seats at two long communal tables setup next to racks of pantry items and produce available for purchase (On offer: San Pellegrino sparkling water, bell peppers, potatoes, and specialty items with an Italian flair). Most options on the menu fall in the $7 to $12 range. Check out the full menu below:
