We’ll be open for brunch / lunch on Saturday 24th February.
When we were open 6 days a week people travelled from as far afield as Gloucester, Reading and Dawlish to eat and most of them came for lunch at the weekend.
To cater to those people who can’t travel into Bristol on a Friday night and to those who simply prefer lunch to dinner we’re going to try opening on Saturday.
Dinner is all well and good but a lot of the food we like to do is decidedly lunch or brunch. If it goes well then we’ll make Saturday openings a regular monthly event just like the Friday dinner.
And opening on Saturday allows me to parody David Sax the author of “Save The Deli”, a book that celebrates all things Jewish Deli. On Saturdays we’ll bring back sandwiches with a vengeance. Great steaming, teetering heaps of glistening, brined, smoked and sliced meats served between slices of home baked caraway seeded rye bread with mustard, pickles, slaw and potato salad.
Tickets are available from our website, priced at £17.50 for 2 courses or £22.50 for 3. Please indicate your choices from the menu when you order.
There’s a choice of three “spread on bread” starters – chopped herring, chopped liver and Hungarian Jewish eggs.
For the main event choose from salt beef hash, latkes with smoked salmon, chicken soup with matzo balls or one of four 6oz sandwiches: salt beef, pastrami, Reuben & griddled beef salami.
Finish with either baked NYC cheesecake or rugelach, all washed down with lashings of coffee, beer or what ever takes your fancy.
There’s no vegetarian option but if you’d like to come and you don’t eat meat then please drop me a line with your order and I’ll rustle up a lecsó ‘Shakshuka’ with stewed peppers, tomato and caraway.
The previous night Friday 23rd, we’ll be open for dinner.
The menu includes the “usual” combination of Ashkenzi, C&E European and Deli cooking.
To start there’s an authentic goulash soup (yes goulash is a soup, not a stew). An appetizer plate with a selection of smoked, cured, pickled and fried fish. Goose rillettes and Hortobágyi pancakes – a savoury pancake filled with chicken “goulash”, served with a tomato, sour cream and paprika sauce
Choose from one of three main courses or a 6oz Pastrami sandwich on rye. Desserts include flódni and curd cheese pie.
Last but not least for our vegetarian guests there’s an 8 dish Sephardic meze.
Tickets are £25 from www.aronsdeli.co.uk
If you’re able to make it on either day, we’d be delighted to see you.
