CLOSED: Ashkenaz DeliGold Coast
This cozy little Gold Coast spot is the real deal when it comes to Jewish-style deli food. A fixture in the neighborhood, this no-frills counter-service deli, named after original owner Sam Ashkenaz, is a popular morning perch for people craving coffee and a bagel with cream cheese. Other specialties include lox, herring, corned beef, gefilte fish, stuffed kishke and roast chicken. Six soups (mushroom barley, split pea, cabbage, matzo ball, kreplach, ham and vegetable, chicken noodle) are available daily, along with sandwiches like corned beef and pastrami and lunch staples like potato salad.
