Central Grocery Muffulettas (
4.9 REVIEWS)

Home of the Original Muffuletta Sandwich

We’ve got muff-alotta love for this New Orleans sammie first created here at this tiny neighborhood Italian grocery store. Central Grocery first opened its doors in the heart of the French Quarter in 1906 and not much has changed since. It’s first owner was Salvatore Lupo, a Sicilian sandwich superhero who came up with the legendary muffuletta. The sandwich became an easier way to serve farmers who would stop by for a traditional Sicilian lunch where everything was eaten separately. Delicious, but not so great for portability #oldworldproblems. So Salvatore sliced open a whole loaf of his Sicilian sesame bread and stuffed everything inside.

If only all problems could be as easily solved with a loaf of Italian bread.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Central Grocery has been featured on PBS, The Food Network, Thrillist, USA Today and Huffington Post among many other media outlets. The Today Show named their muffuletta one of the five best sandwiches.

I ordered muffulettas from Central Grocery for my husband’s birthday. The order left New Orleans last night and arrived to us, near Chicago, at 10:30 this morning, as promised. The product was in perfect conditioned and tasted like we had just gotten it from the store - which we’ve had before. Unbelievable how hassle free it was to place and receive this order. Now I’m looking at other items on the site!

Easy order process! Was a gift for a Central Grocery lover. Shipped overnight & arrived the next morning cold packed and fresh as if we got it in New Orleans! Perfect for a gift!
