Life’s tough for old-school Jewish delis. Selling oversized pastrami sandwiches, stuffed derma (aka “Hebrew Haggis“) and chicken-in-the pot is a cash flow drag compared to your typical sushi restaurant or northern Italian trattoria.
Maybe that’s the reason why Murray’s, the Berwyn corned beef institution, decided to retool their dinner menu to serve New American fare. Fuggedabout the corned beef specials and french fries; they’re going for the beet-and-goat-cheese salad and the pancetta wrapped pork tenderloin.
Any deli which sells pork wrapped in bacon is alright with us. As for the night menu, they’re calling it “bistro M.” Main Line Today described it as “Manhattan meets Westchester (N.Y., not Pa.).” Sounds interesting.
