The menu will feature sandwiches ranging from ham with manchego to smoked steelhead with cream cheese. Salads, chili and soups round out the offerings.

  • (E)verything at tasso is made from scratch. we believe purchasing the finest base ingredients yields the finest end product and are committed to providing our customers with a delicious and unique meal every visit.  

The deli will be open only Tuesday-Saturday, with an 11am lunch opening and 4pm happy hour. according to its website.  It is set to welcome diners in February  

Tasso will open after another artisanal sandwich shop located elsewhere downtown, Bileubird, closes its doors later this week.
