Sandwiches and Salads
Most people like eating sandwiches, and the sandwiches that are made at a deli just can’t be beat. There’s nothing quite like a nice corned beef or pastrami sandwich from a good delicatessen. Whether it be on an onion roll, rye bread, or a bagel, these sandwiches are usually well-received at catered affairs.
If you would prefer to let your guests build their own sandwiches, you can ask your delicatessen to provide a platter of sliced meats, cheeses and breads. Of course, you’ll need some spicy mustard, mayo, and authentic half-sour and/or dill deli pickles to go with the sandwiches.
Delis are often known for the great soups, salads and cold dishes that they prepare and sell. These include tuna salad, chicken salad, seafood salad, and chopped chicken liver spread. When your local deli is providing catering services for your event, they can also present large containers of potato salad, tossed cole slaw, and macaroni salad.
Your delicatessen caterer will probably have other types of platters available. These often include fresh vegetables and dips, crackers and cheeses, breads and spreads, seafood specialties, and fresh fruit platters. A very popular platter features cold smoked salmon with bagels, cream cheese, red onions, capers, cucumber and tomato.
Some hot items that may be offered when your local deli is catering an affair include latkes, matzoh ball soup, chicken noodle soup, reuben sandwiches, hot open roast beef or turkey sandwiches, blintzes, and tuna melts.
Breakfast and Dessert
At some delis, breakfast is served all day. If the customer so desires, perhaps your local delicatessen can arrange to serve a platter filled with French toast, poutine, or miniature quiches.
Dessert is also often available from your local delicatessen when they are providing catering services. From cookies and fruit, to cannolis and Danish pastries, your local deli should have lots of sweet endings to your meals.
