Increasingly busy schedules leave little time for preparing a gourmet meal.
That’s why Walter Stewart’s Market is making it easier than ever for shoppers to bring home healthy, delicious options for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
“We’re putting the finishing touches on an historic renovation of our market,” GM/Owner Alex Stewart said of the 229 Elm Street store. “The deli and prepared foods sections have been a key piece to our remodel.”
The Walter Stewart’s deli and prepared meals are increasingly popular with customers — a reflection on the talent of Walter Stewart’s chefs and the customer service at the deli, according to Stewart.
“We have a great team in place, led by Executive Chef Casey Beland,” he said. “We wanted to build on that.”
Building on the success has meant expanding the entire deli area, creating a full-service hot foods station and a full-service salad bar, as well as expanding the prepared foods offerings in the center of the store. A new chef’s case features new healthy fresh-prepared salad options.
“When customers make their way towards the back of store to our deli, they are presented with a whole line of service with different stations,” Chef Casey Beland said. “The center of the store showcases an expanded selection of prepared meals, salads, artisanal cheeses, fresh pastas, charcuterie and desserts.”
Chef Beland and his team are whipping up more options than ever to fill the larger space. Daily hot bar menu options include lobster risotto, lemon artichoke salmon, beef Bourguignon, orange sesame chicken and smoked pork shoulder, as well as crowd favorite “Taco Tuesday.” Sides range from classic mashed potatoes and mac and cheese to lighter options like braised kale with apples or pesto cauliflower gratin.
The new Stewart’s Salad Bar offers a choice of greens— spring mix, romaine, arugula, spinach or a ‘Power 4 Blend’ — fresh and unique toppings, a choice of meat or seafood and add-ons like avocado or bacon.
Daily lunch specials at the deli counter are expanding as well, with more wraps, roll-ups, melts, clubs and combos, with an array of sides to choose from.
“We’re always adding new flavors,” Stewart said.
