Chicken soup for the soul: Monty’s Deli is opening in Hoxton today

It’s taken three years as a street food stall and one £50,000 Kickstarter campaign but it’s finally here: Monty’s Deli is opening up as a restaurant in Hoxton, and it looks so good we might convert. Open from breakfast through to dinner, the kosher-style (as the Yanks say) eatery throws open its doors today on the site of a former East End bakery and takes on the look of a classic workers’ caff.

The stall – which was named after founder Mark Ogus’s Jewish grandfather – was famous for its heart-warming classics like chicken soup and the Reuben Special sandwich, a juicy stack of proper pastrami and custom rye bread. Monty’s fans will be glad to know all those old favourites are on the Hoxton menu.

New additions sound equally good though; breakfast sees chocolate babka baked daily and the evening menu introduces a slow-cooked brisket stew, sharing joints of pastrami and a special ‘shabbat’ set menu. Everything’s prepped from scratch in-house, down to the very last pickle. Old New Yoik style. 

Morning everybody :)
