How to Score Barbacco's Sandwiches and Salumi without Feeling Like a Sardine

Salumi for one. Two, if you're both on a diet. - CHRIS T./YELP
As I glancingly mentioned in today's review of Barbacco, Perbacco's casual sister has a takeout lunch counter. Place an order online, starting at 8 a.m., then pick it up at the counter (underneath the flat-screen TV) between 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Pluses: same food, same prices, no crowds, no temptation to order a glass of wine with lunch and lose half of the afternoon. Minuses: No food deserves biodegradable knives and forks.

Meanwhile, the Perbacco Web site announces another kind of takeout service: catering platters of Staffan Terje's salumi.

The platters cost $5 a person, include condiments, and come sized for 10 ($50), 15 ($75), and 20 ($100) people. To order, call Perbacco at 955-0663; the Web site claims the cooks only need a "short time to prepare this for you," but be reasonable, people: At minimum, give them half a day so they're not slicing off their fingers in order to rush your mortadella to you. And definitely insist your platter include slices of the fennel-pollen-scented finocchiona.
