Providore Fine Foods, the new collaboration of independent food vendors at 2340 N.E. Sandy Boulevard in the Kerns neighborhood, has added a Mediterranean-inspired purveyor of rotisserie chicken, Arrosto, to its lineup.
Kevin de Garmo and Kaie Wellman of Pastaworks opened the new space in April, serving slow-roasted, free-range, antibiotic-free chickens rubbed with lemon and rosemary oil.
The menu includes options from a whole bird to a quarter bird with or without sides, which include the Arrosto Potatoes roasted in chicken drippings, Arrosto Salad and slabs of Pastaworks’ focaccia. Meals can be ordered at a convenient walk-up window facing the parking lot on the west side of the building. Dining is take-out or available to eat at inside or outside tables. The window’s regular hours will be from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
“My husband and I have long been obsessed with the rotisserie chickens we devoured on our travels along Italy’s Ligurian coast,” said Wellman. “When we first saw the building that’s become Providore, we knew we finally had the right space to open the rotisserie.”
The European-style specialty market that opened in February offers more than just chicken to cross the road for.
As the new flagship location for the 33-year old Pastaworks, Providore Fine Foods gathered a group of local food purveyors to share the 5,000-square foot building, which formerly housed an automobile showroom.
The new marketplace brings local, regional and international culinary provisions under one roof, including pasta, cheese, prepared foods, dried goods, chocolates and candy, wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages at Pastaworks; roast chickens at Arrosto; local, sustainable seafood and meat from Flying Fish Company + Oyster Bar and The Meat Monger; local produce at Rubinette Produce; breads and pastries at Little T Baker; and botanical floras at Emerald Petals.
