I’m thrilled with our new menu. You may recall that we started with a paper placemat, then laminated that placemat and then added a separate drinks, desserts and specials card. The new menu consolidates all of those and adds a few new items.
Come join us for a celebration of fried potato pancakes. Please email Kristen@Caplanskys.com if you wish to enter your latkes in the competition. You'll need to make 5 dozen of your best latkes. We'll provide apple sauce and sour cream. Fun for the whole family. Prizes for all who enter. Music. Games. Hilarity. All free!
This morning I attended the funeral of Yitz Penciner. Yitz was the last of his generation of Toronto's Great Deli Men. For 22 years he worked and managed Shopsy's Deli before opening his own eponymous place at Avenue and Eglinton. He sold that around 2000. He was "The Godfather of Deli" and my mentor.
