Monday Mashup: Deli Home to Unique Dining Experience

My parents have recently become rather obsessed with the Phantom Gourmet. They watch the show and keep track of restaurants they want to try out. Yesterday they went to Moody's Delicatessen & Provisions in Waltham, MA and had a great experience that they told me about and I thought was worth sharing for a Monday Mashup! Moody's is a gourmet shop and deli, offering piled-high sandwiches and specialty sundries. They create delicious, hand-crafted meats that are aged to perfection. Moody's also provides professional catering services for small and large sized events. And if you can’t make the trip to Waltham, give them a call or shoot them an email and they'll gladly ship directly to your door. Talk about service!

But that's not the only unique thing about Moody's Delicatessen & Provisions. They aren't just a gourmet shop and deli. Moody's is home to a full dining room known as The Backroom. They offer a full menu from tasty small plates to delicious entrees, and everything in between. Of course their signature charcuterie is available, along with a carefully selected wine and spirits offering to compliment a perfect lunch or dinner. All of which is prepared with Moody’s concept of using top quality, locally grown and produced products as much as possible.


True artisan craftsmanship is at the heart of Moody's business. Whether it’s their dry-aged meats (methodically prepared each day) or farm fresh veggies (hand-selected at the peak of ripeness), they put pride in what they do. I mean just check out their sandwich offerings, they're incredible!

From pork belly and olive tapenade to jalapeño relish and spicy avocado aioli, we are totally impressed. I am already looking at my schedule to see when I can visit Moody's for The Katz signature sandwich and some delicious charcuterie paired with a tasty wine. Tuesday through Saturday, the deli is open from 7AM-7PM and The Backroom is open from 5PM to late, (as advertised online). Typically, the deli will stay open with the restaurant, so if guests come in and enjoy a sausage or salami, they’ll be able to purchase it to take home after their dinner.


Owner Joshua Smith is a charcuterie genius. His products aren't just being served at this incredible deli but they are also popping up with increasing frequency at restaurants in and around Boston. Joshua's name is becoming ever-so-popular among Waltham locals and now people from all over. Get to know him a little better by checking out his feature on the Phantom Gourmet.

Just drooling over here. I need that pastrami like now. So if you're ever in the area or are just craving some fresh charcuterie, visit or order from Moody's Delicatessen & Provisions for the best meats around. Kudos to Joshua on devouring the details of an old world meets new world deli that has customers lining up around the block for a mouth-watering meal!
