Zeitlin’s Delicatessen is a Jewish Deli that uses the city of Chicago as our inspiration. Started by two brothers, Zeitlin’s focusses on classic Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine using local produce, grains, and ingredients. The team just grew into a new commissary kitchen on the south west side and are looking to growing.
We are going to one day have our own Jewish Deli brick and mortar, bakery, and are eager to feed the needy.
Here is an average day right now at the Deli!
A Day in the life at Zeitlin’s :
Wake up and feel good (knowing you are coming here!)
Come to work. Bake some seriously delicious bagels and sourdough bread.
Package them up to be delivered all over the city!
Pause to nosh a bagel while drinking some coffee.
Roll into prepping knishes (while practicing how to pronounce them).
Make some delicious salads and tasty sandwiches!
Clean some dishes (perhaps the only non-happy task?)
Have a well-deserved and tasty lunch with the team!
Plan out the second half of the day!
And that’s it. Break down, and have a great rest of your day.
