What is Gourmet Heaven you may ask? If any of you have been lucky enough to check out one of its Downtown Providence or New Haven locations, you know what a fantastic addition this eatery is going to be to the Brown community. Gourmet Heaven is an organic, gourmet, and specialty food market – essentially a combination of a deli and Whole Foods. It offers everything from snacks and meals (including breakfast, sandwiches, salads, wraps, and hot/cold buffet tables) to imported and everyday groceries. Though nothing can fully fill the void that Tedeschi left in our hearts, it seems as though Gourmet Heaven will make a most valiant effort. For what it’s worth, Yalies have long given “G-Heav” their endorsement.
According to the website, the 205 Meeting St. location (where Via Via once was) should be expected to open any day now. For all of our sakes, let’s hope that the arrival of the warm weather is a good omen for the hasty arrival of delicious food.
