The Borscht Belt Delicatessen located in Stockton, NJ, is bringing New York-style Delicatessen along with traditional Jewish American appetizing cuisine and baked goods to the Stockton Market (19 Bridge Street) this Saturday, June 19.

Founders Nick Liberato (Paramount Network's Bar Rescue, Netflix's Restaurants on the Edge) and Michael Dalewitz (The Mindful Mentor), in partnership with Steve Lau, say the restaurant was concepted as an acknowledgement of the Borscht Belt region of New York’s Catskills Mountains focused on bringing families together through food, entertainment, and traditional Jewish culture during the 1920s through the early 1990s.

Key menu offerings will include various platters with fresh lox, meats, spreads, daily fresh bagels and baked goods, pickles, Bubby Bell's Matzo Ball soup, Borscht Beet salad, and piled-high pastrami sandwiches fresh from their custom-built pastrami machine made in New York. 

Additionally, The Borscht Belt is proud to partner with numerous high quality local New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York City-based specialty purveyors to bring additional premier offerings to the Deli. Coffee will be poured fresh daily through an exclusive partnership with award-winning Paper Plane Coffee, a 5th generation Colombian family-owned coffee company. Guests can also enjoy fresh bagels courtesy of NYC’s famous Ess-a-Bagel, Streit's Matzos, Junior’s cheesecake, Oneg Bakery and Seed + Mill Halva.

To celebrate the grand opening, The Borscht Belt has partnered with Bucks County’s Shir Ami – synagogue and hub of Reform Judaism – to donate a percentage of their first month’s profits to Leket Israel, Israel’s National Food Bank and leading food rescue organization to deliver nutritious foods to Israelis in need.

Saturday, June 19th and Sunday, June 20th beginning at 7:00 a.m., locals and visitors alike are invited to The Borscht Belt for grand opening festivities including live ‘Sounds of Sinatra’ by Joey C, comedic entertainment by Joey Novick, exclusive giveaways, complimentary tastings, meet & greets with Chef Nick Liberato, and more.
