“The cinematic equivalent of comfort food: warm, generous and made with love.” – The Washington Post
A dazzling showcase of Jewish food and its inseparable link to American Jewish culture. Once numbering in the thousands, there are now fewer than 200 delis across America. Guided by the irrepressibly ebullient Ziggy Gruber – a leading third-generation deli owner – Deli Man charts a mouthwatering history of the deli’s establishment as a cornerstone of American cuisine. A loving portrait of an unmatched culinary community, this is a tribute to the last remaining deli men fighting to keep the flame alive.
