Mile End Delicatessen
Stuffing its white-walled nook with reclaimed bowling lane benches/tables, plus a counter lined w/ salvaged Woolworth's diner stools, Mile's a gustatory homage to Montreal's apparently-famed Jewish delis; the Canuck behind the caboodle's a former bassist
Typically known for latkes, lox, and other deli favorites, Mile End Delicatessen will celebrate the season with its annual “Traditional Jewish Christmas” menu on Christmas Eve and Day. For the holiday meal, the shop swaps Montreal-style bagels and hearty pastrami sandwiches for a sit-down menu with Canadian, Jewish, and Chinese influences. The results include dishes like Pajeon-Style Latke Pancakes, Reuben Fried Rice, and Egg Custard Tarts for dessert that’s all available in the restaurant or to go.
