If you've never been to David's Brisket House, now is a good time to make your first pilgrimage. The Bed-Stuy institution—a longstanding Jewish deli now operated by Muslims—has re-opened its doors after being closed for over two months of renovation. More

HIT Korean Food & Deli: Kimchi and Reubens in a Chelsea Office Building

Erin Zimmer 7 comments

Bibimbap and Reubens from one deli? That you have to walk through an office building, past a doorman to find? It's a little confusing, but something of a Korean deli speakeasy, and just a five-minute walk from SEHQ. More

Mile End: Great Dinner Menu, But Skip the Smoked Meat

The Serious Eats Team 24 comments

The crew at Serious Eats has loved the idea of Mile End, a self-styled Montreal deli in New York, since it opened just about one year ago. We all love the Montreal-style smoked meat we've eaten at Schwartz's, and of course our love of pastrami and smoked meat knows no bounds. It's just that every time we have tried Mile End's smoked meat, it hasn't been quite right. But how does their brand-new dinner menu stack up? More

Video: Ben's Best Delicatessan, Third Generation Deli in Queens

Erin Zimmer 5 comments

Just like you can't leave Peter Luger without ordering steak, you really can't go to Ben's Best Delicatessen without biting into a pastrami sandwich. In this latest episode of Food Curated from documentarian Liza de Guia, we meet Jay Parker, the third generation owner of the deli in Rego Park, Queens. He started as a grill boy at age 13, where his job involved making sense of frenetic orders: "four with, three plain, two with mustard, hoo behhh fehhh faster, faster!" (that was pretty much a direct quote from the video). But even years later, the pastrami is still slow-cooked exactly the same way. More

A Sandwich a Day Adam Kuban 8 comments

A Sandwich a Day: Pastrami and Corned Beef Sandwiches from Liebman's Deli

A Sandwich a Day Carey Jones 7 comments

Once upon a time, every borough of New York must have had an awful lot more places like Liebman's Deli, up in Riverdale in the Bronx. It can't have changed much since it opened in 1953, and it's probably fair to say that it's clientele hasn't changed much either. More

Katz's Deli: Go for the Pastrami, Not the Breakfast

Jewish delis, even fair-to-middlin' ones like mini chain Ben's, are an endangered species, so any time a deli stays open (especially one that almost fell into Panera's hands) is cause for celebration. [via Eater]... More
