Italian grinder
$$, Outdoor Seating, Pizza, Italian, Shawmut
"Take the best elements of Coppa's salumi plate, toss them in vinegar, add fresh ground pepper, and put them between bread. Then charge a fraction of what you could pay for the dish... This is the perfect spot for a late Monday afternoon breakfast."
Beef heart pastrami
$$, Outdoor Seating, Pizza, Italian, Shawmut
"This dish is iconic. Super tender pastrami, wonderfully seasoned and spiced, is shaved in front of you. Sit at the bar and listen to some great banter and music. Try not to drool too much. Order another plate, as required."

"Charcuterie is everywhere now, but Coppa's really stands out. My favorite is the coppa (neckmeat of the boar), which is what the restaurant is named after, but the prosciutto is a very close second."
