Zaftigs Delicatessen

Nominated for: BEST Deli

Zaftigs Delicatessen 335 Harvard St. Brookline MA (617) 975-0075

And your Jewish mother will kvell over the brisket even if she doesn't take to tray offerings such as pork sausages and smoked ham. Kosher, this is not. In fact, what has made this 'new Jewish'-style restaurant one of the best eating spots in Brookline are the less traditional offerings, including cheddar-apple omelets and banana stuffed French toast. The wild artwork and hip young wait staff seal the deal; this ain't your grandma's deli."

Probably the toughest call Ive had to make make yet picking them over Sam's. However Zaftig's breakfast just kills it. Banana stuffed french toast might be the best thing in the city
