I posted the sad news that Fontano's closed on First Street in Downtown Elmhurst (April 22, 2011). This morning, on the way home from Courts Plus, I spotted this bright red sign in Fontano's window that announces some good news: We're getting an Italian Deli called Zanzi's. From the listings, we'll be treated to Paninis, subs, salads, soups, espresso, cold cuts and....wait for it....Daily Specials! Hooray!
The place isn't too terribly big, so I'm guessing that they'll focus on the deli counter/sandwich making, but we *could* use a good Italian Deli that sells some packaged goods. I have to travel to either Addison or Westmont to pick up my Scamorza Cheese when I want to make pizzas. Would be pree-tay pree-tay nice to be able to buy that (and other things) right here in Elmhurst.
