Schmaltzy’s Deli now open on Leary Way

The Jewish deli Schmaltzy’s opened today at 928 NW Leary Way.

Jonathan Silverberg is the man behind the new delicatessen — he also owns Napkin Friends food truck.

Schmaltzy’s will have the classic Jewish deli offerings — homemade pastrami and corned beef for example — and will prep latke press sandwiches for the Napkin Friends food truck. The deli will also have grab-n-go options, and a few tables for dining in.

The breakfast menu, available from 8am to 10:30am, includes breakfast sandwiches such as the M.O.T. Sandwich with egg, apple wood smoked bacon, spiced tomato jam, spinach and chevre on a challah bun ($7) and of course, Bagel with Shmear for $3.50, or with lox or smoked trout for an extra $4.

Their lunch menu is fairly expansive, with both cold and hot offerings and the famous latke press sandwiches such as the O.G. with housemade pastrami, mama lil’s peppers, Thousand Island dressing, horseradish cream, arugula and gruyere ($12); and the “Jewbano”, a Jewish-style Cuban with braised pork shoulder, kosher beef bologna, pickles, yellow mustard and swiss ($12).

Their hours will be 8am to 5pm to start, Tuesday to Saturday, and 8am to 2pm on Sundays (closed Mondays).

  1. So disappointed to hear this place is using the old McDonald’s hours for breakfast…thanks for controlling my food! When/why did this become a thing!? 2.5 hours of serving breakfast? Is that even worth it? Open at a real deli time, if your gonna call yourself a deli open at 5:30 a.m. or maybe go the South American route (or McDonald’s) and serve breakfast whenever someone wants to eat that type of food.

  2. My husband and I dined at Schmaltzy’s this morning. We ordered a pastrami and gruyere knish, a sea salt bagel (THANK G-D!!! No one ever has salt bagels and they are the BEST) with caper schmear and smoked trout, and a Basic Breakfast Sandwich (fried egg, applewood-smoked bacon, avocado, tomato and melted cheese) on a fantastic challah bun that did not fall apart during its tour of duty. We each had Americanos.

    Now I know someone is going to post here how terrible it is and the bagels aren’t made right and “you call that a babka?!?” and yadda yadda. Whatever. Without reservation, I can recommend Schmaltzy’s. The food was delicious, the cost was sensible, the portion sizes were perfect and the service could not have been more genuinely friendly and welcoming. The shop itself is clean and bright, with primary color pops here and there. Some parking spaces are directly in front of the shop and ample street parking was available when we went this morning.

    Go and enjoy a good breakfast. Eat, eat! You’re looking skinny. You need some meat on your bones!
