Betelnut chef de cuisine Michael Siegel is branching out soon with his own Jewish deli in the Financial District, and it will be called Shorty Goldstein’s. As Tablehopper reports, he’ll be featuring some family recipes, like his grandmother’s chopped liver abd his great-grandmother’s potato knish, as well as house-made pastrami, smoked fish, seasonal salads, and more. And this will be the second new-school Jewish deli in town in a year, after Wise Sons. The exact location is still TBA as the previous tenants seem to still be in business through December 1. Siegel leaves Betelnut after a five-year tenure in two weeks, and hopes to open Shorty Goldstein’s in January. Stay tuned. [Tablehopper]
