The Hertel Avenue sandwich specialists have opened a second store, adding a liquor license and planning to serve brunch in the future. Ben Tsujimoto had a look around and talked to Joe’s Deli owner Joe Lyons, head chef Chris Salvati and general manager Eliseo Taborda about their plans.
"Salvati’s dinner specials will delve into relatively unusual cuts of meat—for restaurants, at least. Hangar steaks, veal cheeks, pork shanks, higher-end pork rib-eye, pork flat-iron steaks and pork belly BLTs—with house-made bacon—will be highlighted in the deli’s rotating dinner specials," Tsujimoto reported.
But never fear, vegetarians, Joe's Deli is thinking of you too.
“Our specials menu [at the new restaurant] will be very Elmwood-driven,” Lyons said an hour before Joe’s Deli Elmwood’s first preview dinner. “We’ll have more gluten-free options and plenty of vegetarian choices.”
