As we settle into the seasons that require no appearances in a swimsuit, there is much to embrace. Chief among them, we believe, is Raduno’s Muffaletta sandwich. A generous stacking of foodstuff that is not only fun to say but also delicious to eat — Mortadella! Sopressata! Provolone! Dijon aioli! — Raduno’s take on the most famous sammie to come out of New Orleans is primo. Beyond the quality meats and cheese you’d expect from a neighborhood delicatessen that makes its own sausages and pates, the sandwich brings to the equation cloud-soft and clearly fresh-baked ciabatta and a spicy and piquant olive spread we loved. $12. Available to go or inside Raduno’s bright and spacious plant-filled café. Find it at 545 E. Eighth St., Traverse City. (231) 420-1218, www.radunotc.com.
