With his well-seasoned website
and new book, Save the Deli
, David Sax has taken public his personal mission to save the taste and culture of the Jewish delicatessen. And on Monday he’s taking it to the Beard House, where he’ll preside over a dinner of elevated deli delights entitled “A Schmaltz to Remember
.” New York eateries—like Ben’s Best, Second Avenue Deli, and Liebman’s—will provide some signature dishes, while New York chefs—such as Bruce Bromberg and Eric Bromberg (Blue Ribbon), Harold Moore and Snir Eng-Sela (Commerce), and George Lazi (Fig & Olive)—will riff on deli classics, creating a delectable menu paired with a selection of fine wines.
