Like the earth, a sandwich is made of layers and gathers its strength from its meaty core, which pushes condiments toward the crust to erupt and bury fingers in deliciousness. Let rivers of mayo magma run with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sandwiches, bagels, and more at Kravitz Delicatessen. Redeem this Groupon at the Belmont Avenue or the new Poland Library locations. Kravitz Delicatessen has been dishing out flavorful kosher fare for more than 70 years. Those looking to jump-start morning motors can dine-in with breakfast vittles such as corned-beef hash with grilled onions and peppers perched atop a fried egg ($6.99) or nibble on one of 10 types of fresh-baked bagels, including cinnamon raisin, blueberry, and sesame ($7.50/dozen). Evade the gaze of the watchful office llama and fill a lunch hour with one of Kravitz's many sandwiches, including protein-filled gyros ($6.99) and the vegetarian-friendly Hannah K ($4.99), which hugs hummus, Israeli salad, and crunchy veggies in the pillowy arms of a grilled pita. The deli also features daily specials and homemade soups and salad.

Kravitz Delicatessen founder Rose Kravitz had a big heart—one that was about the size of a half-pound corned beef sandwich. Or at least that's the claim of The Rose “K” sandwich, one of the deli's signature Wall of Honor menu items. In addition to her, the menu pays tribute to other locals and organizations throughout the Valley, such as Tom and Jeff—winners of a crazy combo competition—whose sandwich includes melted Ohio Swiss cheese over corned beef and a bagel.
Rose founded Kravitz Delicatessen in 1939 and moved the deli to its current Belmont Avenue location in 1970. Her son Jack now runs things, making sure that the deli carries on its traditions of corned beef and fresh-made bagels. Over the years, the menu has also expanded to include Jewish, Mediterranean, and Vegetarian dishes. These days, Jack and his team have expanded to a second location inside the Poland Library, which gives Kravitz Delicatessen its rightful place amid the history books.
