Wed–Thu 11 am–5 pm, Fri 11 am–8 pm (pay-what-you-wish 6-8 pm), Sat–Sun 11 am–5 pm

Examine how Jewish immigrants, mostly from Central and Eastern Europe, imported and adapted traditions to create a uniquely American restaurant in an interactive, immersive exhibit –  and pose with cut-outs of favorite foods.

Explore the food of immigration, the heyday of the deli in the interwar period, delis and Broadway, stories of Holocaust survivors and war refugees who worked in delis, the shifting and shrinking landscapes of delis across the country, and delis in popular culture. See neon signs, menus, advertisements, deli workers’ uniforms, and video documentaries.

Pick up a copy of a kid-centric guide to the exhibition in the gallery. Don’t go into this exhibit hungry or you won’t last long. Deli-themed menu options, including a pastrami on rye sandwich and smoked white fish dip, available at museum restaurant Storico.
