Situation: You’ve been traveling by car a good part of the day to get to northern Door County and you just don’t want to relax, grab a quick bite to eat without the fuss of changing your attire. You’re hungry for something good, maybe the kids are cranky and you all just want to settle into your beautiful room at Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay and carry-out food would satisfy everybody. Solution: Culinaria…a new (one year old) delicatessen created by Scott and Sally Mc Evoy, fills a niche for great deli food that has been needed up here. They present a wide array of hot and cold made-to-order sandwich selections (Boar’s Head meats and a wide array of cheeses), soup, salads, pizza, beverages and some European specialty items.This has become a favorite place for locals and tourists alike who are looking for quick and delicious food. Try the superfoods salad, roasted cauliflower, homemade lasagna, or any of the wonderful hot slider sandwiches. You can eat inside in a space adjoining the deli, or, sit at tables outside on a nice day. They’ll pack it up for you so that you can bring it back to Birchwood while you kick off your shoes and relax on your room deck or baklcony. Any  way you wnat want to chow down, you’re gonna love it! Chef Scott also makes paella on weekends that is fantastic.The best thing about Culinaria is it’s just a good walk or a short drive from Birchwood Lodge. Make your reservations with us at 866-854-7195, or on-line at and then head to Culinaria for deli delights. Many of our staff go to Culinaria frequently…ask about our favorites.
