It’s been over a month since they left the Monarch, a year since Zane started selling his smoked meat, but the wait is almost over.
This Saturday (I know I said Friday, I was wrong), Caplansky’s Deli opens for previews at 356 College St. in Toronto.
What’ll he serve? Smoked meat of course, and knishes, but also matzo ball soup, lox eggs and onion, locally raised rib steaks, chopped liver, kishke (!), corned beef and pickled tongue. Think of it as a computer program. The Monarch was Beta. We’re now into full production.
