Q. How and why did you get into the business?
A. We opened Nosh NY Delicatessen because we recognized a void in the market and a long desire for a NY Style Jewish Delicatessen that has existed since the closing of Joe’s Delicatessen in Albany years ago.
Q. Are you known for anything special?
A. We are known for our Pastrami and Corned Beef, our huge triple decker sandwiches, our traditional homemade Jewish foods such as Potato Latkes, Knish, Kreplach, Chopped Liver, Stuffed Cabbage, and Matzoh Ball Soup.
Q. What do you love most about the business?
A. We love to see the dining room full of people enjoying our food, running into friends, and taking pictures of their sandwiches when they are placed on the table. We love hearing our guest say that Nosh reminds them of the great delis of yesteryear.
Q. What do you think is your biggest challenge with the business?
A. The biggest challenge in this business is maintaining consistency, continuously putting out the highest quality product, and maintaining the best service possible.
Q. What do you want the community to know about you?
A. First and foremost we want the community to know that we are here. Even though we have been open for almost a year and a half, we find that many people are surprised to hear that there is a great Jewish Deli in Albany. We want people to know that we are not just a place to go for lunch. Nosh is a perfect place to come for a casual dinner or to pick up dinner to take home. Our “Call Ahead” Drive Thru pickup has become very popular. You can call in your order, swing though the drive thru, and never have to leave your car.
Nosh NY Delicatessen has a great catering menu. From deli meat platters, sandwich platters, dairy platters, smoked fish platters, to full dinners, Nosh is a perfect choice for any home or office function.
