Label’s Table, Jerry’s Famous Deli and Nate N’ Al in L.A., Moishe’s steakhouse in Montreal, B&H Dairy and Sammy’s Roumanian in NYC, Jay and Lloyd’s and Pastrami Masters in Brooklyn, Zaidy’s in Denver, Hamsah Mediterranean Grill in Pittsburgh, and Mile End in Birmingham, Alabama — all these beloved Jewish nosheries have either closed or are hanging on by a thread. Watch Steve Goldberg, President, Stage Deli; David Sax, author of “Save the Deli!”; and Forward National Editor Rob Eshman for a conversation on why so many delis are facing extinction, what we lose when they’re gone, and whether they can ever be replaced.
