Avenue Delicatessen is the shiny new, super-popular Lansdowne hotspot that replaced stalwart eatery Doyle's Deli. The concept is classic deli with a unique twist: a Jewish/Italian mashup. The owners of the new place are Laura Frangiosa, her husband Joshua Skaroff, and Brian Flounders, who is a friend of the couple. The menu is full of classics from both deli cuisines, and in some cases—like the Jewish Wedding Soup, which has matzoh balls alongside veal meatballs and escarole—they come together as one.
But, if you can't make it out to Lansdowne to experience the greatness that is Avenue Deli, fear not, as Scott Schroeder and the American Sardine Bar crew is hosting them tomorrow night starting at 6 p.m. for a pop-up of sorts. And, they'll be offering a special menu for the event which is posted below.
