Greg Laketek, founder of beloved charcuterie and sandwich seller West Loop Salumi, confirms that his Randolph Street shop shuttered last month after nearly five years of business. No word on the cause. Laketek—who learned the craft of meat-curing from Italian salumi king Massimo Spigaroli—earned countless praise for his salumi, and thusly the store’s shutter comes as an unexpected surprise. Details on Laketek’s future plans are under wraps, but those bemoaning the loss of his excellent preserved proteins can still pick up West Loop Salumi coppa and finocchiona at Eataly.
