Meet Hatteras Island business Owner, Nick Blaskovics: As a local wine and food enthusiast, Nick, brought his passion for fresh taste to the Island in 2018 in the form of artisanal deli sandwiches, locally made desserts, prepped take-home family dinners, and a unique wine and cheese pairing event held every Thursday at 4pm.
After speaking with Nick one-on-one we learned that some of his ingredients, like the mozzarella, pesto, pimento cheese, and corn beef are made completely in-house while others are specialty imports from highly esteemed food and wine destinations, including Italy.
The Pamlico Deli recently re-opened in new a location in May and features beautiful new renovations perfect for hosting their weekly wine tastings hosted every Thursday night. This event is often accompanied by guest speakers, live music, local beers, and charcuterie boards for ideal wine pairings.
Nick’s top menu recommendation varies frequently but the charcuterie and wine pairing program are a consistent top-tier pick. Unfortunately, one of the biggest challenges his business faces is staffing along with some unique logistics issues that come from sourcing specialty ingredients.
However, any visitor who has the opportunity to talk with him will see that, despite these challenges, his passion and love for great tasting food preservers. Those interested in learning and exploring their shared passion for food by working alongside Nick for the summer can also receive an opportunity for limited supplied housing.
If you’re on the Island, be sure to stop by and say “Hi” to Nick, come out for Wine Tasting Thursday events or check out the video to view the brand new deli space complete with a lounging area and tasting room.
