Josh’s Deli – Surfside, Florida

Posted on Posted in BB Approved, Miami-Dade County, Surfside, Visits by Burger Beast

With a couple of friends in town from the UK I wanted to take them to eat something they can’t find across the pond. What could make an impression? And then it hit me, Josh’s Deli.

Chef Josh Marcus, who was also the creator of the unfortunately very short lived MB Brewhouse and the now legendary Chow Down Grill is the man with the plan at Josh’s Deli.

It took me a little bit to wrap my mind around the idea of the unorthodox Josh’s Deli as Evan Benn of the Miami Herald called it. Josh makes his own Bagels, has a Matzo Ball French Onion Soup on the menu plus the excellent & different Pizzas made on Bagel dough every Thursday (Pastrami & Brussels Sprouts is killer).

I’m never been a “Jewish Deli” guy but I do love Sandwiches, big beef ones too. They have them here too like the Jewban (Pastrami, Pork, Pickle, Swiss). It was really Josh’s Deli that created my fascination for Pastrami Sandwiches. My parents are giant fans of his Pastrami Sandwiches.

I feel that I’ve never shown Josh’s Deli the love it deserves. I hope this post changes that and you’ll check it out for yourself. There is something for everyone on the menu done by a chap named Josh who’s doing things his way and helping to make the Miami Food scene diverse, different and delicious. Way to go dude.

Here’s a sampling of some of the Food I’ve had at Josh’s Deli over the last couple of years:
