This place is hard to miss: just look for the building with Rockefeller painted in white on its side. It's chef Scott Alfonso (formerly Chophouse Perth) and business partner Michael Adonis’s tender ode to the Jewish delis of New York City.
There are New York-sized sandwiches filled with house-made pastrami and corned beef. Potato latkes (fritters) with trout rillette. Smoked-ricotta blintzes with fruit compote. Stromboli from the wood-fired oven. And bagels, of course – five different types and four different schemers.
Coffee is from Dukes, with a bottomless filtered brew – your choice of light or full-bodied roast. House made shrubs – flavoured vinegar-based syrups topped up with soda – offer a sour alternative to run-of-the-mill soft drinks. For something a little stronger, there’s beer from Brooklyn Brewery.
The deli is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinners during the week.
