It’s a BIG DEAL at Miracle Mile Deli to survive 70 years

When Jack Grodzinsky opened Miracle Mile Deli he wasn’t sure the restaurant would last 5 years, let alone 70. Since 1949 when the native New Yorker opened the deli it has become one of the most popular Phoenix restaurants. The 3rd generation of the Grodzinky/Garcia family runs the restaurant now serving a menu of delis staples to hungry customers. To celebrate their seven decades in business they are offering customers a “BIG Deal” on Friday May 10th.

From 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. guests can get any two of their famous deli sandwiches for only $19.49.

Part of the “BIG DEAL” proceeds will be donated to “Partners That Heal“, a program at the Phoenix Theatre that uses improvisation & structure to improve communication in a variety of care settings. Specially trained team members assess needs and qualities of each person and use improvisation to build trust and communication.

Customers can win a $100 Miracle Mile gift card with a drawing every hour on the hour from 12 – 8 p.m.

Miracle Mile Deli is at 4433 N. 16th St. Phoenix 85016.

Experience the next generation of smoked fish at Chompie’s

Chompie’s, the Smoked Fish Experts, Launches the Most Fresh and Unique Approach to Smoked Fish Available in Phoenix

smoked fish picture

Chompie’s, www.chompies.com Arizona’s New York Deli, is introducing their new and improved smoked fish menu featuring authentic Norwegian Smoked Fish selections that will excite and satisfy the new generation of fish loving foodies as well as long-time smoked fish loyalists. Smoked fish has long been a Jewish tradition as well as a tradition at Chompie’s. In ancient times, when kosher meat was not always available, fish was an important staple of the Jewish diet.
“For over 34 years, Chompie’s has always strived to provide the freshest, most enjoyable, and most authentic experience and food possible, while keeping up with the times, which is why we are introducing the new smoked fish menu,” said Neal Borenstein, Executive Vice President and owner of Chompie’s.

Chompie’s has branded its entire new line-up of smoked fish “Gen-S”–the next generation of smoked fish in terms of selection (wider variety and new tastes), superior quality and sustainability, appealing to Gen-X’ers and Gen-Y’ers hungry for modern twists on traditional deli offerings with expectations beyond those of the generations before them. Simply put, Chompie’s Gen-S ain’t your grandma’s smoked fish; in fact, it knocks it out of the water.

The new smoked fish selections found both on the dining menu and in the fresh deli case include:

Nova Lox: The grand-daddy of them all, this traditionally smoked Norwegian salmon has the perfect balance of flavors. It’s good with just about anything!

Pastrami Smoked Salmon: Traditionally smoked Norwegian salmon with pastrami seasoning, making for an irresistibly sweet and tangy flavor.

Gravlox: An old world style of smoked Norwegian salmon that is also brined and seasoned with a traditional dill and pepper blend. A very unique, slightly salty flavor.

Smoked Whitefish: Wood-Fire smoked, our Whitefish is from the fresh waters of the Great Lakes. The gleaming golden skin is a deli tradition like no other.

Smoked Black Cod: Also known as Sablefish, one of the most coveted smoked fish varieties world-wide, our version has an irresistible flavor. Typically caught in the east Pacific, between Alaska and California.

Baked Salmon: Wood-Fire smoked over a unique blend of hardwoods, our baked (a.k.a. Kippered) salmon has an especially smoky flavor. Try it on its own or in our Baked Salmon Salad.

The new smoked fish menu includes selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including Gluten-Free Friendly and Deli take out as well.

A sample of the new smoked fish menu at Chompie’s:

Pastrami Smoked Salmon: “LEO” lox sautéed with crunchy fried capers, onions, and scrambled eggs. Served with Potato Latke hash brown, choice of bagel and cream cheese 10.99

Lox Sampler Platter for Two: Nova Lox, Gravlox, Pastrami Smoked Salmon, Plain and Veggie Cream Cheese, leaf lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumber, capers, and choice of two bagels 22.99
