Deli Man USA / 2014

“Like a fat slab of pastrami, Deli Man is the cinematic equivalent of comfort food: warm, generous and made with love.” – Washington Post

In Houston, Texas, third-generation deli man Ziggy Gruber, whose grandfather opened Broadway’s first-ever kosher deli, has made what could be the finest delicatessen in US history, built on the traditions of New York’s best. This documentary lovingly examines the obsession with Jewish deli food, and how it’s as much about the culture as it is the food itself.

Features appearances from American legends and deli lovers Larry King, Fyvush Finkel, Alan Dershowitz and Jerry Stiller.
