Jonathan Richler was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland and his family has deep roots in Montreal, Quebec. He spent many years in Montreal and worked on The Main for the majority of them. Once he relocated back home in 2010 he dearly missed his brisket and the experiments commenced.
Jewish Deli held their first pop-up deli in 2013 at Chinched Bistro and received tremendous support from the culinary community. What started as a hobby became a tasty project and in 2014 Jewish Deli took up a weekly residence in the St. John’s Farmer’s Market and continued the pop-up momentum with a small, meat-loving team. You can find the travelling team at several other locations
Newfoundlanders and Labradorians take tremendous pride in their culture, history, and food and Jewish Deli’s menu selection honours and reflect this to the best of our ability using locally sourced food and artisans to make our products shine. Thank you for your continued interest and appetite!
