Explore how Jewish immigrants imported and adapted traditions to make a home in a new country and create a uniquely American take-out store and restaurant. The exhibition includes an array of neon signs, menus, advertisements, uniforms, and other memorabilia through which we can learn about the history of the food of immigration, the stories of Holocaust survivors who worked in delis, the connection between delis and Broadway, and much more.
