You can't keep a good mensch down. Especially when he makes incredible sandwiches.
Mensch Jewish Delicatessen has been missing in action for some time.
The deli, which specializes in slow-brined, smoked, and handcut New York–style hot pastrami sandwiches on fresh rye and homemade pickles, was launched by Israeli-born Nitzan Cohen, who has since become the corporate executive chef for the Storm Crow Alliance restaurant group.
For those who have missed Mensch's trademark massive sandwiches, Cohen will be holding a pop-up event on December 11 at Faculty Brewing (1830 Ontario Street), starting at 6 p.m. and continuing on as long as supplies last. (Mensch and Faculty Brewing previously teamed up in December 2016).
Also on the menu will be beet-cured lox with labneh (Middle Eastern cream cheese) on a fresh poppyseed bagel.
