Burlington's Cobblestone Deli Changes Location and Name


Published December 5, 2017 at 1:03 p.m.


Cobblestone Deli in Burlington has moved and changed its name, trading its Battery Street location for a storefront at 55 Main Street and becoming Main Street Deli & Cobblestone Catering.

The new business, owned by Peter Liska and Nick Betcher, operates under an LLC called Artisan Culinary Kitchen, said Betcher. The enterprise has three branches: a deli/luncheonette in the space that previously housed the Doughnut Dilemma, a catering business and the kitchen of the Growler Garage across the street.

The deli menu and catering business have expanded since the November 29 relocation, said Betcher, who worked as a cook at Cobblestone for about two years before becoming Liska's business partner.

In addition to its "signature sandwiches," Main Street Deli serves more vegetarian and vegan options than did Cobblestone, including grain bowls with housemade pickled vegetables and pierogi from Luiza's Homemade With Love. Sautéed in butter with caramelized onions, the pierogi are offered with kielbasa and sauerkraut.

The deli's hot-sandwich menu includes Reubens and Montréal smoked meat ($13 each with a pickle and a side). Build-your-own sandwiches come in full and half sizes ($5 to $11), and breakfast sandwiches ($4.25 to $7.25) are served all day.

The catering operation offers evening bar events (in partnership with Growler Garage) and dinner service. "We pretty much will cater anything within reason if somebody asks for it," Betcher said.

At Growler Garage, located at 30 Main Street, food service started about a month ago. Artisan's pub-style menu focuses on small plates and features a variety of sliders — beef, crab cakes, stuffed mushrooms — and chicken wings.

"It's been really well received," Betcher said.

Main Street Deli is open daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Growler Garage serves food daily, too.
