Here is Oliver Sacks’ final piece for The New Yorker along with a link to an interesting documentary Deli Man that I recently saw on a flight. I’ve never taken to gefilte fish but do appreciate most other things deli. Sorry Montreal, however good your food is (I will make a detailed report soon), Schwartz’s was pretty mediocre compared with New York’s remaining delis as per Deli Man.
