Filmmaker Erik Anjou’s documentary, "Deli Man," tells the story of deli owner Ziggy Gruber. In Houston, Texas, third-generation 'deli man' Ziggy Gruber has built arguably the finest delicatessen restaurant in the US. His story—augmented by the stories of iconic delis such as Katz's, 2nd Avenue Deli, Nate 'n Al, Carnegie, and the Stage—embodies a tradition indelibly linked to its savory, nostalgic foods. Join us for an engaging conversation with Erik Anjou, who will share the story he sought to tell in "Deli Man."
You can screen the film in advance of the conversation; "Deli Man" is available on Amazon Prime and Netflix.
This live event will be presented via Zoom and will stream live on the Yiddish Book Center's Facebook page. Space is limited. If you’d like to reserve a virtual seat in the Zoom audience—which will allow you to submit questions—registration is required.
