Tinker's Rainforest Deli invites visitors to completely customize their lunch amid lush, green foliage that crawls along the walls and sprouts from the ceiling. Ten species of bread, including croissants, wheat bread, and white or wheat hoagies, await fillings from a roster of seven different proteins, such as pastrami, turkey, or egg salad, and a bout of soul-searching helps diners choose cheese, veggies, spreads, and garnishes. Top dark rye with horseradish and cranberry to complement heaps of roast beef, cheddar, and lettuce, or cap a bagel-swaddled portion of tuna salad with pepper jack, jalapeños, and sprouts. Each sandwich is accompanied by a choice of chips or pickle, and patrons can wet whistles with a soy chai latte or mocha, or spike a milkshake with a shot of espresso in order to jar sleepy drinking-straws awake.
Tinker’s Rainforest Deli
After years of managing other people’s restaurants, Tinker Berson realized a long-cherished dream by opening her own deli, where a menu of lunches and all-day breakfasts stuffs diners amid verdant potted plants and climbing vines. Clients opt for the simplicity of staff-conceived deli creations or engineer their own, choosing a bread base, favorite condiments, meat such as pastrami or roast beef, cheese, and veggies to match the size of their appetite or one-up a lifelong rival sandwich eater. Breakfasts beckon morning diners with similar creative possibilities as well as quick bites, such as a veggie burrito or belgian waffle drizzled with syrup and topped with strawberries. Fresh salads and real-fruit smoothies with optional Red Bull boosters infuse meals with sweet vitamins, and the onsite espresso bar jump-starts brainwaves with handcrafted caffeine hits that ready minds for Jeopardy tournaments or memorizing the dictionary. Tinker's Rainforest Deli stocks catering trays with vegetables, sandwiches, or assorted meats and cheeses that can feed up to 35 partygoers.
