Without delis, sandwiches would have to be made from bite-size animals, and take-a-number machines would be forced to work as counting aids for the easily distracted. Tally pastrami with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of deli fare, bagels, pastries, and groceries at Murray's Sturgeon Shop. This Groupon is not valid for smoked fish or caviar.
Murray's Sturgeon Shop, vociferously praised by critics at Zagat and New York magazine, carries on a tradition of excellence in grocery and deli service it started in 1946. Manhattan classics line the shelves, such as bagels in poppy, sesame, or pumpernickel varietals ($5.50/half dozen) and house-made cream cheese infused with tasty toppings ($8–$11/lb.), and international artisanal cheeses ($12.99–$21.99/half lb.) make excellent allegory fodder when combined in a melting pot. Kosher salami recalls old New York with a characteristic blend of garlic, spices, and American dreams ($5.99/half lb.), and hand-pickled herring arrives mouthside sporting cream or wine sauce ($3.49/fillet). Rugelach, crumb cake, and noodle pudding headline on the pastry stage, and dried fruits and assorted nuts sate snack cravings.
