Moody’s Delicatessen & Provisions makes tasty sandwiches, but it is first and foremost — under the name New England Charcuterie — a producer of artisan cured meats. While you’re eating that pastrami or Italian sandwich, sit at one of the wood tables and, if you’re inclined, watch sausage dry in a glass-enclosed chamber. Moody’s, named for the busy street where it is located, opened its doors in November after a major renovation of the Italian deli Salem Food Store which had been in the spot for 38 years. Moody’s chef and owner Joshua Smith, 37, had been a customer of the Italian market. His new business fulfills a longtime goal, “to launch my own brand of meats and have a storefront to sell it,” he says.
