Can the Jewish Deli Survive?

I hosted a panel on the future of the deli.  Is it sustainable and can it survive?  It was held at Saul’s Deli in Berkeley on Tuesday, February 9th.

  • I do have faith that the deli tradition will continue, if not flourish for years to come. Delicatessens and diners that serve kosher-style food is found in almost all states, including Fort Lauderdale, Florida because of the people's appreciation to good food and healthy lifestyle. Kosher-style food preparation is gaining popularity and that is not such a surprise since almost anyone who is introduced to this kind of food get impressed.

  • With the whole thing that appears to be developing within this specific subject matter, your points of view happen to be rather stimulating. Nevertheless, I am sorry, but I can not subscribe to your whole strategy, all be it exhilarating none the less. It appears to everybody that your commentary are generally not entirely justified and in reality you are generally yourself not totally certain of the point. In any case I did appreciate looking at it.
