Q&A with the Owner
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Our authentic, New York style menu features top-quality meats and imported fishes, along with overstuffed sandwiches and delicious daily homemade soups and sides. Breakfast is served daily with flavorful omelettes, lox, and challah french toast.
What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion?
I grew up in my father's restaurants, and that's where I first developed a passion for food. Surrounded by amazing chefs, I learned all there is to know about the kitchen. I soon found myself working behind the line and creating my own dishes and recipes.
What’s the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Since there is no doubt that the East Coast has some amazing delis, and San Diego lacks authentic delicatessens, it's always a great compliment when former New Yorkers equally compare me to their favorite delicatessen back home.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
All meats are imported from both Chicago and New York, and our fish is also imported from New York and Nova Scotia. We serve top quality graded cheeses and have fresh, local bread delivered daily. The owner and managers work hands-on at our restaurants every day to make sure our customers are served well.
