Jonathan Richler was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland and his family has deep roots in Montreal, Quebec. He spent many years devouring deli cuisine. Once relocated back home in 2010 he dearly missed his brisket and pickles.
#JewishDeli held their first pop-up deli in 2013 at Chinched Bistro and received tremendous support from the culinary community. What started as a hobby became a tasty project and in 2014 Jewish Deli took up a weekly residence in the St. John’s Farmer’s Market and continued the pop-up momentum with a small, meat-loving team.
Newfoundlanders and Labradorians take tremendous pride in their culture, history, and food and #JewishDeli menu honours and reflect this using locally sourced food and artisans to the products shine.
