Mixing Bowl: 2nd Ave Deli Sued, Guss’ Pickles Returns, Defining ‘Local’

A full menu — including corned beef bahn mi and beef bacon — for the New York City-based Kutcher’s restaurant (yes, like the resort in the Catskills), set to open this fall, is finally available. With Octavia’s Porch, Traif, Mile End and Sixth and Rye, Grubstreet wonders, “Is it time to officially declare ‘modern Jewish cuisine’ a trend?”

Jewish chef and pioneer in local food in New York, Rozanne Gold is profiled in this season’s Edible Manhattan.

The iconic 2nd avenue deli is being sued over the name of its Triple Bypass Sandwich. Arizona’s Heart Attack Grill claims they own the rights to the name for their Triple Bypass Burger. The Shmooze has the story.

Guss’ Pickles, which was a fixture of the Jewish Lower East Side food world for 85 years and moved to Brooklyn last year, will return to the area this weekend. They’ll make a one-day appearance at the Hester Street Fare, says the Village Voice.

Abbot’s Pizza in L.A. is serving up a five onion pizza on a bagel-based crust with poppy and sesame seeds, says Slice. You can dunk your crust in a variety of dips, but not cream cheese.

How do you define “local” when it comes to food? Supermarkets and larger food companies aren’t sure either. Check out the story on The Kitchn.
