Sad to say, but this isn't about take-out food at Musumeci's Italian Deli. --- Unfortunately, Musumeci's has to be out of the building it has occupied downtown on State Street (251 S. State) for years and years, by August. So, this is the last call for Musumeci's veal parmigiana, manicotti, meatball subs and other gargantuan-portioned Italian-American goodies before they are going, going ... gone.
When I asked the surley Musumeci if he was moving, he said "Yeah, I'm moving!" When I asked, where? he said, "Home!" Back east? I inquired. "Maybe...." said Musumeci. Maybe Italy. Who knows? What I do know is that we'll miss the food at Musumeci's, if not the authentic east-coast attitude.
