Hi there. Don’t get too excited, I’m just coming up from my summer hibernation to spread some good news out of the Twin Cities deli front (courtesy of the well named Matt Saxe, check out his Fringe show).
A new deli is coming to the Minneapolis/ St. Paul area soon. It’s called Rye Delicatessen and Bar, and it’s slated to be open in October sometime by chef Tobie Nidetz and restaurateur David Weinstein. I don’t know much about it, but considering the area’s much loved Fishman’s Kosher Market and Deli closed this past winter, it’s a good sign for the economy of deli lovers, for sure.
Here’s some interviews with the owners. Fingers crossed on this one.
