Save the Deli

News: Deli Tech store closed, and Mill Basin gets the Daily News nod.

Ok, I’ll admit, I’ve been out of the loop for a long time, and for no good reason other than traveling, a lack of time to post, and sheer laziness. What do you expect? It’s the dead of winter here in Toronto.

So let’s just round up what I’ve missed in the past few weeks:

First, the bad news. Deli Tech, that plucky, over the top, little NYC deli in Denver that could, has closed down because they lost their lease. Says their website: “For the time being our in-house dining services will be closed until further notice. But don’t worry, Deli Tech is still available for your Catering and Delivery needs 7 days a week.”

This definitely saddens me. Fred Anzman and Barbara Simon were some of the most welcoming, vivacious, memorable, and hospitable deli owners I met on my odyssey across America. They were big in every way, but they delivered fantastic food, in a part of the country that desperately needs it. I’m glad to hear they’ll be keeping the business alive for catering purposes, and encourage anyone in Denver or visiting to hook up with them for some chicken soup, cabbage rolls, or a hunk cheesecake straight from the Carnegie. Good luck guys.

Now, on a lighter note, some more fuel for the forever pastrami rivalry in New York. The esteemed New York Daily News has published a pastrami poll for the best in the city, with Brooklyn’s Mill Basin Kosher Delicatessen getting the top spot. Mazels. King of New York delis, Katz’s, follows close behind, and bringing up third is half-centurion Loeser’s, of the Bronx, which seems to be hitting its stride five decades going. Honorable mentions go to Ben’s Best, Junior’s, and some place called the Ave T. Deli in Brooklyn. Anyone know about this place? First I’ve ever heard of it.

    If you don’t like to buy a OBD2 code reader, you can use your PC instead, by simply connecting your PC with the car by a USB or Bluetooth connector. LR
