Great food! Great people!

In 2000, with the help of close friend and business partner Andrew Wash, Hershel’s nephew, Stephen Safern, opened the deli in 2000 to honor his uncle’s legacy and Eastern European heritage. At Hershel’s East Side Deli, Safern and his team serve up a full assortment of Jewish deli classics, including matzo ball and chicken noodle soup, latkes, kugel, hot dogs, potato knishes, bagels with lox, New York–style cheesecake, and, of course, hot deli sandwiches stuffed with homemade corned beef, pastrami, or brisket. Their food is made from scratch daily, the meat is carved to order, and the staff are happy to honor special requests—“just how Uncle Hirsh would have wanted it done.”

    Food looks great. Missing two items- no alternates offered. No contact about missing items from Vendor or Mercato App. No reciept in the bag to tell me if I was charged for the items or not. Would go back to this food establishment, would not recommend ordering with Mercato
