A Half-Century of ‘Delly’ in Maryland

The 50-year-old Maryland delicatessen is known for its Reubens.

Mazel tov to in Annapolis, Maryland, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this month. Proprietor Teddy Levitt is the son of late founders Chick and Ruth Levitt, who ran the place for decades.

The deli’s a major schmoozing spot for local pols, and still gets throngs of tourists. “The reason for lasting so long is how my parents taught me,” Levitt told the Forward. “We treat everyone like locals.”

Getting a Chick and Ruth’s sandwich or omelet named after you means you’ve really made it in Maryland politics. Governor Larry Hogan just got his — a cheesesteak sub.
