December Movie:


Sunday, Dec. 18th at 2 pm

(Please note new winter showtime!)

Like a fat slab of pastrami, “Deli Man” is the cinematic equivalent
of comfort food: warm, generous and made with love.

Loosely structured around a profile of Houston restaurateur David
“Ziggy” Gruber - a third- generation “deli man” and the film’s genial
tour guide - the documentary is also a history of the American
institution of the Jewish delicatessen. Using archival photos, old
menus and the like, filmmaker Erik Greenberg Anjou traces the rise of
the deli from its mid-19th-century origins as a family business of
German immigrants to its peak in the 1930s, when there were a couple
thousand delis in New York City alone. Today, the film tells us, there
are not even 200 Jewish delis left in the entire United States. Some of
them, like San Francisco’s Wise Sons, carry the torch while
incorporating such “Jewish fusion” dishes as deep-fried kugel with
maple syrup.

It also features interviews with other deli operators from around
the country and such loyal celebrity customers as Jerry Stiller, Larry
King and Fyvush Finkel.

If your mouth doesn’t water while reading this, cross the film off your
list. But if it does, head to the movie. Just make sure it’s not on an
empty stomach. Between all the towering corned beef and food talk,
“Deli Man” will leave you hankering for the nearest place to get some
“haimishe maykholim” - Yiddish for “home-style cooking.”
