Jonathan Richler was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland and his family have 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 there was a smoked meat void in his weekly routine, 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 an experiment, and in 2014 the Deli moved to the St. John’s Farmer’s Market and continued the pop-up momentum with a small, meat-loving team.
Newfoundlanders and Labradorians take tremendous pride in their culture, history, and food and Jewish Deli menu items honour and reflect this to the best of our ability using locally sourced food and artisans to make our product shine.
