AV­ENUE DEL­I­CATESSEN

Where Philadelphia - - WHERE NOW PHILADELPHIA -

Just 10 min­utes out­side the city, in the up-and- com­ing town of Lans­downe, the Av­enue Del­i­catessen is a sunny spot the com­mu­nity has re­ally taken to since it opened in 2013. Owner Brian Floun­ders and Head Chef Mau­reen Stoebe­nau marry Ital­ian and Jewish her­itages into a restau­rant that cel­e­brates both dis­tinct deli cul­tures. Open for break­fast and lunch only, the white-and-aqua space is the place for tra­di­tional dishes like hous­esmoked trout salad bagels and ‘South Philly’ chicken cut­let sand­wiches lay­ered with broc­coli rabe and moz­zarella, as well as clever cul­tural mash-ups like Rueben arancini and Jewish wed­ding soup, fea­tur­ing both veal meat­balls and matzo balls.
