Mile End Delicatessen serves Jewish comfort food including Brooklyn bagels and so much more. Popular in New York City and most recently in Nashville where they opened a new place in spring of 2018, Mile End Deli will be setting up shop near Railroad Park within the month.

News Flash: Opening Delayed

This long-awaited Jewish deli had plans to open on January 10th, but unfortunately on January 9th, their team announced on Instagram that they have had difficulty obtaining a liquor license and it will take them a few more days until they are ready to open their doors.

Think breakfast should be offered all day?

Mile End Deli agrees, and they also offer separate lunch and dinner menus.

Mile End Deli serves your favorite morning goodies well into the evening. Although, for those who are not inclined to eggs in the afternoon, they also offer a full lunch and dinner menu. If you’re looking for comfort food but want something other than your typical southern comfort meals, then you should consider Jewish comfort food at Mile End Deli.

How do they do it?

Well, making mouth-watering bagels takes a team.

Its all about working together, and these partners know how its done. Each bringing with them a unique perspective and skill set. Dreaming of a Jewish deli with a Montreal influence, Joel Tietolman opened Mile End Deli’s first storefront in New York City in 2012. Partner Max Levine has also been apart of the company since the beginning and has offered his wisdom and knowledge of the city as an NYC native.

Partners in the South

When Tietolman and Levine decided to expand to the South they chose Adam Grusin and Nick Pihakis to join the Mile End Deli crew. Grusin has had quite the culinary career. With an extreme interest in old Jewish American deli’s, he was a natural fit with Mile End Deli’s culture. Leading the Pihakis Restaurant Group, Pihakis has been in the restaurant world since he was 19 and has led the charge with many respected and well-known restaurants which exceeded expectations.

With a divine menu that will surely fit your fancy, Mile End Deli believes in fresh produce and time-honored traditional philosophies that make their comfort food stand out. Based on Montreal restaurants and focusing on Jewish-inspired cuisine, Mile End Deli believes in a family-focused atmosphere. We’re counting down the minutes till their doors are open, and we hope you are too!
