Sabatino and Co Roma to Bring Truffles to Boston's Back Bay

It looks like a manufacturer and importer of truffle products is going to be opening its first retail store, and it will be located in the heart of Boston's Back Bay.

According to Grub Street, Sabatino North America is planning to open Sabatino & Co Roma on Newbury Street on March 24 (the Boston Globe mentions that it will be moving into the space where the cosmetic store Shu Uemura used to be). In addition to the selling of truffles, Grub Street mentions that the new shop will sell truffle-based foods as well as skin-care products and cookbooks, and an article in The Feast also says that Sabatino & Co Roma will sell non-truffle gourmet foods such as mustard and vinegar.

[March 25 update: According to the Sabatino Facebook page, the new Sabatino & Co Roma store in Boston is now open.]

Grub Street notes that Sabatino & Co Roma will be opening other stores in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco by the end of 2011.

The address for this new shop is: Sabatino & Co Roma, 130 Newbury Street (between Clarendon Street and Dartmouth Street), Boston, MA, 02116. The Sabatino website can be found at: http://www.sabatinotartufi.com/
