Hudson & Essex, a landmark in Mansfield’s culinary scene, is about to add another unique feature.

This Wednesday, the restaurant will debut “Gastronomia,” an Old World Italian-style deli and eatery. This new venture aims to bring a slice of Italy right into the heart of downtown Mansfield. “We are ecstatic to welcome Gastronomia into our home,” the restaurant recently shared on social media. The eatery will be open from Wednesday to Saturday, 12-7 PM, offering a full range of Italian products and influences.

A Menu That Whisks You to Italy

Gastronomia promises a menu that will attract Italian food aficionados. From panini filled with porchetta, mortadella, arugula, roasted tomato, red onion, pesto, burrata, and balsamic, to homemade focaccia, the offerings are a culinary tour of Italy. But that’s not all. The menu also includes homemade gelato, tiramisu, lasagna, pasta fredda, and much more. “This Italian panino is just one of many items on the menu,” Hudson & Essex teased, setting high expectations for what’s to come.

If you have a sweet tooth, Gastronomia has you covered. Starting Wednesday, you can pop into this new deli concept and indulge in house-made cannolis and gelato, available in several different flavors. These classic Italian desserts are sure to become a hit among locals and visitors alike, offering a sweet ending to a hearty Italian meal.

More Than Just Food: An Experience

What sets Gastronomia apart is not just its mouth-watering menu but also its ambiance. The eatery combines the charm of a sit-down local restaurant with the convenience and quality of an over-the-counter grab-and-go deli. Freshly baked breads, local beef, and a wide range of Italian products make it more than just a place to eat; it’s a place to experience the richness of Italian culture.

Whether you’re in the mood for a hearty panino, a bowl of pasta, or just a scoop of gelato, Gastronomia is set to become the go-to spot for Italian food lovers in Mansfield. So mark your calendars for later this week and prepare to be transported to Italy, no passport required.

Hudson & Essex is located at 51 East 4th Street in downtown Mansfield.
