Lupo Fish Deli

For those who are fond of fish delicacies, Lupa Fish Deli is the place to visit. This traditional delicatessen is located inconspicuously on the corner of a side street. For decades, Lupo has conquered the realm of homemade fish, preparing botargo (a cured fish roe, typically from tuna), bonito (popularly eaten grilled, pickled, or backed), and soused herring (with a mild marinade). Whilst at Lupo, be sure to pick up some smoked salmon and okra salad as well!

Haim Rafael

Amongst all of the famous delis in the Levinsky market, Haim Rafael is the largest and most well-known of all. The Rafael family personally cares for the needs of the deli, from supplies to preparations. However, it is not just the locals that take advantage of the wonderful place – many restaurants also purchase their secret ingredients from this magical shop.

Turk Lachmajun

Turk Lachmajun not only has one of the best shawarmas in Israel, but also a full Turkish menu! Hunger enducing smells engulf visitors the moment they walk in, which has been the case since this restaurant was established. On the menu, one can find a thin and perfected lachmajun pita, a selection of stuffed vegetables, and kebabs to die for. This restaurant is always packed with hungry diners who know where to find satisfaction!

Yom Tov Deli

In 1947, Yomtov Levy had already opened a delicatessen in Turkey. When he arrived in Tel Aviv in the sixties, he envisioned his deli opening once again. Yom Tov Deli proudly serves homemade marzipan, jam, and almond cookies. On the savory side, cheeses, salads, and pickled fish quench patron’s appetites. Shopping at Yom Tov always turns out a tad pricier than expected though, as it is too easy to succumb to delicious treats which weren’t on your intended shopping list!

Basher Fromagerie

When standing at the doorstep of Basher Fromagerie, the size of the store makes it difficult to believe that this is the biggest cheese shop in the country. But don’t let the size deceive you. Upon realizing that you are looking at more than 1000 types of cheese, most of which are Israeli, it quickly becomes clear as to why they hold the title! Eli Basher fell in love with the European cheese culture in Paris and now imports cheeses, beers, wines and more, in an attempt to share his love of high quality delicacies. If you are looking for a specific kind of cheese, you are sure to find it at Basher Fromagerie.

Fortuna

The story of how chef Eyal Vaknin opened Fortuna is that of a fairy tale. After leaving the world of luxurious gourmet restaurants behind, he decided he wanted to open a classic, Israeli grill, which he did, deep in the heart of Jerusalem’s market. Fitting to the mood of the ethnic Israeli market and inspired by the local produce, Eyal serves homemade pita and laffa which is accompanied by generous mezze platters. Although the atmosphere remains casual, Eyal brings his gourmet background to Fortuna, which is evident in what is considered the Rolls Royce of grilled skewers and kebabs. This grill house is a definite go-to for traditional Israeli grill for locals and tourists alike.

Katz’s Delicatessen

Each week thousands of visitors from around the world flock to Katz’s to dine in this legendary deli, and to feast on the most delectable sandwiches, platters and meats. But it’s really New Yorkers have made Katz’s Delicatessen what it is, making Katz’s an inherent part of the city’s culture and history. They enthusiastically spread the word, brought their friends in, wrote books, shot films, and kept coming back for a pastrami on rye.

Building a reputation on longevity alone is nothin’ to brag about, which is why we’ve built ours on quality. Now that’s somethin’ special. We only select the best cuts of beef for our corned beef, pastrami, brisket, and other fine foods. Our corned beef and pastrami is cured using a slower method, which best flavors the meat, without injecting chemicals, water, or other additives to speed the process.

Our finished product can take up to a full 30 days to cure, while commercially prepared corned beef is often pressure-injected (or “pumped”) to cure in 36 hours. Yep, you read that right. 30 days vs. 36 hours. Now, which sounds like the better meat to you?

 

 

Canter’s Deli

Canter’s Deli offers an authentic deli-style experience unparalleled anywhere on the West Coast. Our endless menu is full of breakfast, lunch and dinner menu items available 24 hours a day. Fresh baked goods are available from our bakery. A full bar and Cocktail Lounge is open 10:30 am-1:40 am.

Since 1931, Canter’s has been serving up LA’s finest deli cuisine. Voted the best pastrami by the LA Times and LA Weekly, Canter’s prides itself on delivering the amazing experience that has kept its clientele returning over-and-over again for decades. This culinary landmark is lovingly managed by the third- and fourth-generations of the Canter family, who take a hands-on approach to ensure the highest quality in every aspect of the restaurant. Whether it’s the freshly-baked breads, or the famous house-made pickles, Canter’s always goes the extra mile to provide the authentic, traditional Jewish deli experience, which helped grow the restaurant from a small storefront to the massive operation that it is today. As inviting as its food, Canter’s is also known for its welcoming ambiance, a perfect blend of contemporary comfort with the nostalgic charm of its stylish 1950’s decor. Canter’s continues to stand out as a unique dining experience that transports patrons back to the golden age of delis.

Canter’s Deli is one of California’s oldest delis. Located in Los Angeles’ Miracle Mile District -the heart and soul of the entertainment industry – Canter’s Delicatessen is a third-generation family-run business whose owners have an intense pride in their deli and a hands-on work ethic.

It all began in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1924. After losing a deli in the 1929 stock market crash, Ben Canter and his two brothers moved to California with just $500 in their pockets.Eager to succeed, they opened up a Canter Brother’s Delicatessen in 1931 in Boyle Heights, the Jewish center of Los Angeles.

When the character of the neighborhood changed, Ben Canter’s daughter, Selma Udko, and her then husband, Harold Price, partnered with Ben Canter and his wife, Jennie, to purchase a prime location at 439 North Fairfax Avenue. And instead of calling it Canter’s Brothers they called it Canter’s Fairfax.

In 1953 this new team purchased the old Esquire Theatre at 419 North Fairfax and moved Canter’s Deli just up the street to the larger location.

For over seventy-five years now this third-generation family-owned business has served food to locals, tourist, and celebrities alike. With its Art Deco décor and its trademark autumn leaves ceiling, this hangout has hardly changed in its over half century at its current location.

As Sheryll Bellman wrote in her book, Americas Great Delis:

“You wouldn’t think that Los Angeles could have a deli rival to New Yorks, but for those who know and love the deli culture and appreciate all that it evokes, this place is heaven. Voted the #1 Best Pastrami by the Los Angeles Times, Canter’s Deli sandwiches are always served on rye, unless you ask for something else, but dont do that! Made  famous for its corned beef and pastrami sandwiches Canter’s Deli boasts of serving the best quality food at reasonable prices. . . Tour buses stop here, and many tourists eat here as well, but the real heart and soul of this deli are the locals who have never moved from the neighborhood and the stars who slip in here incognito for a late night nosh. Canter’s Deli is a place of solace, and they come for the old-fashioned Jewish food that reminds them of their past. Open 24 hours and only closed on Jewish holidays, you can come here anytime for a delicious taste of yesterday.”

Canter’s has also become a favorite whistle stop for hot political contests. Mayor Bradley, Governor Deukmejian, Rudy Giuliani, and Bill Simon have gone from booth to booth introducing themselves to our customers. And with CBS studios just up the block, celebrities frequent Canter’s every day. Our catering department caters to many television shows and movies, as well as catering their wrap parties.

Over the years, many celebrities have passed through our doors. In the 50s Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller ate here, as did Jack Benny and Elizabeth Taylor. Other celebrity noshers include Sydney Poitier, Mel Brooks, Wilt Chamberlain, Charlene Tilton, Brooke Shields, Jacqueline Bisset, Catherine Oxenberg, John  Travolta, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Buddy Hackett, Olivia Newton John, Muhammad Ali, Monty Hall, Bill Cosby, David Brenner, Rodney Dangerfield, Dick Van Dyke, Shelly Winters, Elizabeth Montgomery, The Cars, Henry Winkler, and Greg Morris. The producer of Miami Vice, Michael Mann, wrote here for hours at a time when he was writing for Vegas. The Neil Simon movie, “I Ought to be in Pictures”, with Walter Matthau was filmed here. Many celebrities who prefer to go “incognito” sneak in around 3:00 am for a late night nosh!

Canter’s is also part of the larger Los Angeles community having received numerous awards from such institutions as the City of Hope, appreciation letters for outstanding and dedicated service, and letters from Jerry Lewis and the Muscular Dystrophy Association thanking Canters for donating food.

Canter’s Delicatessen continues to be a Los Angeles landmark and late night hot spot, and, with the 2003 addition of Canter’s Deli at Treasure Island in Las Vegas, we are committed to bringing the best delicatessen food to our noshers on the famed Las Vegas Strip and to Dodger fans at Dodger Stadium.

Delicatessen 79/81

Delicatessen is a deli located in central Tel Aviv known for its baked-goods, salads, sandwiches and on-the-go foods.

About 9 years ago, Delicatessen expanded their restaurants and bakeries to make it convenient for consumers to stop by and grab a bouquet of flowers, desserts, deli foods, cheeses, breads, and a bottle of wine. The owner of Delicatessens is well-known throughout Israel and has several other successful establishments throughout the country that always receive high praise for their quality of food and service.
