The Mile End Deli dynamo shares his picky past and awkward Shabbats at grandma's house.
Food & Wine Editor
Noah Bernamoff examines food through a historic lens. He and his wife, Rae, along with close friend, Max Levine, opened the Mile End Delicatessen in Brooklyn in January 2010. It’s an old-fashioned deli inspired by Jewish comfort food. Today Bernamoff also has Mile End Sandwiches, a sandwich shop in Manhattan’s NoHo district, a Mile End Cookbook, and will soon have an online Mile End bakery and new menus coming out in the fall. Bernamoff talked about his evolution from a fussy child with picky tastes to an adventurous flavor creator and successful restaurateur. But at heart, he’s really an egg roll.
