Like many in the Triangle, hubby and I are transplants from New York. In fact, we're both originally from Brooklyn. Growing up, there were delis all over our neighborhoods.
We came from Long Island to North Raleigh five years ago and have sorely missed a Jewish (style) deli.
Once we learned about Weinberg's we eagerly awaited its opening. In fact, we were among those who went there on opening day and took out a variety of goodies.
We fell in love with the pastrami and heavily seeded crusty rye bread.
The potato salad is just like that which we enjoyed up north.
We have since been back two or three times including this morning for breakfast.
We've tried one of the soups, turkey mushroom barley. As a late friend of mine
used to say, it tastes like MORE!!
The rugelach is TDF with the right touch of cinnamon, raisins, nuts and a shmear
of raspberry jelly,
That deli mustard is now in traditional little pots with tiny spoons right on the tables.
I asked about kishke and learned that it should be available in about two weeks.
There is a very proficient and friendly staff now, Whatever questions we've had
were answered well.
Weinberg's is still in the midst of its opening. Kinks are being worked out.
Bottom line, we're very happy campers.
