After years of plating Asian eats and even some from Jeremiah Bullfrog, owner/chef Josh Marcus did everyone a mitzvah by converting his Surfside Chow Down Grill location into Josh's Deli: a no-clowning, "homey", kosher-style eatery that places the focus squarely on eats by staying as low-key as possible, thanks to sandwiches in little plastic baskets, paper napkins on the tables, and
Pavarotti just bellowing counter service
Pretty much everything down to the bagels is homemade, including hot and cold sandos piled way high with hand-sliced pastrami (made from 10-day-cured Angus brisket), duck prosciutto, and slow-braised tongue, plus specialty numbers like said pastrami, slow-roasted pork, pickles, and Swiss on the "Jewban"... no, wait, it rhymes with "Cuban"! You're totally allowed here!
Because if you teach a man to fish, he can feed himself forever, but if you sell a man some fish, it will help your bottom line, you can grab thinly sliced fresh-caught swimmers like 3hr brine-soaked black cod that's smoked for another 4hrs w/ paprika & molasses and three-day-cured salmon, plus corned beef chili cheese fries, and Josh's "award-winning" matzoh balls made from duck fat and ginger beer
Manischewitz actually delicious vino will be poured, while the being-ironed-out beer list promises local micros, Belgians, and specialty crafts, providing you with quite the mitzvah of a bar.
