Kornblatts Delicatessen Loves You!
About this Business
From Our Editors
New York City native Josh Kornblatt grew up cherishing the corned-beef sandwiches and smoked fish of nearby delicatessens. Unable to find these flavors upon moving to Portland, he founded Kornblatt's Delicatessen, which T: The New York Times Style Magazine hails as “one of the truly great New York delis outside the five boroughs.”
Kornblatt’s glossary familiarizes locals with the food by describing delicatessen classics, such as knish (pastry stuffed with filling) and chopped liver (old-timey insult, like "frumious bandersnatch"). And like any great deli, Kornblatt’s has an entire menu dedicated to bagels, from deli bagel sandwiches to bagels crowned with pickled herring.
Though rooted in the Big Apple, Kornblatt’s also salutes its surroundings by filling taps with local beer and including a vegetarian reuben among its eight styles of the sandwich.
