In the cozy neighborhood of Glendale, resident Mike Vitale brings a taste of his hometown, the Hill, to a 600-square-foot storefront mere blocks away from his current home.

Vitale's Deli (425 North Sappington Rd., Glendale; 314-966-9912) has only been open for a little over two weeks, but owner Mike Vitale already has a legion of regulars — most of whom greet him with a hug after they walk through the front door.
