Deli-cious:: Noshville Celebrates New York Deli Month

August has been a whirlwind of celebrations fit for Nashville foodies, and we couldn’t be more tickled about it! Noshville Delicatessen continues those celebrations by participating  New York Deli Month through the end of of the month, and the beloved eatery is offering highlights to commemorate the occasion.

New York Deli Month, which runs August 1 to 31, was launched to highlight the best of Jewish deli cuisine and the culinary traditions surrounding it. Noshville is one of just 19 participating delis around the country, with other locations ranging from Los Angeles to New York City and Fort Lauderdale!

The restaurant opened its doors in December of 1996 and has remained a Nashville favorite ever since, serving regulars and tourists alike cooked to order deli classics like matzah ball soup, New York-sized corned beef sandwiches and breakfast staples.

Co-owner Tom Loventhal conducted extensive research about the delicatessen before opening one of his own.

“I traveled to places like Miami, New York and Los Angeles to dine at some of the country’s most famous delis,” says Loventhal. “Jerry’s Deli in Los Angeles and the former Rascal House in Miami Beach were big inspirations for me.”

All participants in New York Deli Month will donate a portion of proceeds to selected charitable organizations in their own communities. For each sandwich sold on Noshville’s New York Deli Month menu during August, a percentage will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank and the Nashville Holocaust Memorial.

Loventhal says that he strives to make Noshville a place that feels like home for his employees, Nashvillians and their families. In fact, the restaurant’s tagline is “Make Your Mother Happy… Eat and Enjoy!”

“I wanted to started a delicatessen because deli food is comfort food that makes people feel good. It’s your breakfast, your sandwiches, your soups,” says Loventhal. “Noshville has become a tradition for many families. Our original guests are now bringing in their own children or even their grandchildren to continue that tradition, and that’s the biggest compliment we can receive.”

Noshville has recently expanded its Green Hills hours to include dinner service Wednesday through Sunday, in addition to its popular breakfast and lunch offerings seven days a week.

Noshville Delicatessen is located at 4014 Hillsboro Circle. For more information about the restaurant, visit noshville.com.
