See, Deli!

9.00 p.m. on a Friday night and there are maybe 50, 60 women in the Cedele outlet at Wheelock Place. At any one time, there are a maximum of 5 men, not counting the waitstaff. So what's it with women and Cedele? We think it's the way it markets itself - the healthier than thou image. Let's face it, what's not to like about a place that makes you feel less guilty about stuffing your face?

From the transfat-free yet delicious bread...

boston clam chowder

to the yummy nutritious-sounding soups...

grilled white fish with pesto and penne aglio olio

to the lighter main options...

orange macadamia cheesecake

that leave us feeling virtuous enough to allow for dessert, Cedele knows how to push the right buttons. We've been fans ever since it introduced quinoa into its salads and into our diets. It could still do better (the fish could be fresher!) but it still beats its nearest competitors, TCC and Coffee Club, by a mile, for serving real food.
