NUTLEY, NJ - Jason and Lauren Braitsch thought they were doing a quiet soft opening of Vilardo's Deli on High Street but that all changed as soon as the first person with a smartphone shared the news on social media. Opening their doors right before Christmas, the place has been hopping despite record cold temperatures, with residents from the area placing lunch and dinner orders, as well as New Year's Eve catering orders. 

Jason was mentioned that Vilardo's is accepting catering orders to welcome the new year. With a full kitchen and mozzarella made in house, they plan to keep their staff busy for the next few days. The catering menu is available on the Villardo's website.  While going over the menu, Jason said that he wants to hear what the community wants and will accommodate requests.

Although closed on New Year's Day (Monday) , the deli is usually open seven days a week: .
