Save the Deli Wins A James Beard Award!

(Yes, that’s a Hawaiian tie)

Well deli lovers, we did it. Last night Save the Deli won a James Beard award in the category of Writing and Literature!

It was a wild night. I haven’t shvitzed that intensely since I was at a Russian banya. There was every kind of treyf you could imagine, great friends from the food world, and enough mixed alcohol to give me a hangover for the rest of today (hence, the late entry).

Thanks to everyone who made this happen. That means you.

    Aha! Thank God, and mazel tov. I can’t believe it took Save the Deli to introduce me to Kenny and Zuke’s here in Portland… what, I was living in a hole?

    I hope you get more and more of this kind of recognition and exposure.
