Even though I live in the neighborhood, it's hard to keep up with all that is going on in Logan Square. What with a newly remodeled theater, bookstore, and cocktail bar, it's hard to keep all of the places straight. So, I was a little taken aback to see Half Italian, a new Italian market and deli, open unexpectedly on Milwaukee Ave, just north of the Kedzie and Logan Boulevard intersection.

As you might expect, the shop sells a selection of Italian products, like pasta and olive oil. But it also has a selection of wine, a full service deli, and coffee. I stopped by yesterday to take a look around to try and get a sense of what you'll be able to buy. If anyone happens to try a sandwich, please let me know.
