Dig into This Reinvented Jewish Classic

These Jewish delis go surf 'n' turf with pastrami-spiced salmon.

Jewish delis are curing fish with classic smoked meat seasoning (pepper, coriander and cloves to name a few), so you don’t have to play favourites. Double down in Portland, Maine, where Rose Foods layers salmon cream cheese with their Pastrami Nova gravlax. Grab a to-go pack of spicy, cold-smoked fish at Lox + Schmear in Toronto, alongside a dozen Montreal-style bagels. And with harissa cream cheese adding kick, Wise Sons in San Francisco shows that bagels and lox 2.0 are here, they’re schmear, get used to it.
