A look at the history of delicatessens in the United States.
Erik Greenberg Anjou’s film explores Jewish culture as it reflects the heart of a vital ethnic history. In Houston, Texas, third-generation deli man Ziggy Gruber has built arguably the finest delicatessen restaurant in the U.S, Kenny & Ziggy’s. His story – augmented by the stories of iconic delis such as Katz’s, 2nd Avenue Deli, Nate‘n Al, Carnegie, and the Stage – embodies a tradition indelibly linked to its savoury, nostalgic foods. Indulge in the deli foods you love and learn about the traditions that make deli one of America’s great cuisines.
