    Fresh Ingredients Make the Deli-News in Dallas Delicious


    The Deli-News in North Dallas is a family run delicatessen serving delicious authentic New York style delicacies for twenty-nine years. My son discovered this local gem and invited my husband and I to come along for a delicious lunch. It has become a favorite.  The food is made fresh in the kitchen with recipes past down from the owner's Russian mother. Behind the counter of the Dallas Deli News the chalkboard menu reads like those of a New York Delicatessen. The specialty is a CNN sandwich loaded with meat served between two slices of freshly made  bread. The owner wanted his customers to share the daily news together with a wide choice of homemade food.


    The New York style menu includes corned beef with chopped liver sandwiches. The giant menu is loaded with authentic Russian Jewish favorites such as latkes kugels and mozzaball soup.  The triple decker sandwich packs enough pastrami to fill Shea Stadium. I enjoyed  homemade chicken noodle soup tasting like my mom's, with delicious chicken and carrots. My son gobbled his Brisket Brisket Brisket Sandwich displayed on the cover. The meat was so tender it melted in his mouth.  Cinnamon Apple Waffle with juicy raisins was my husband's favorite.


    Employees have worked at the DeliNews for over twenty-five years. Three brothers have joined the staff.  The owner arrived from Russia with his son in the eighties and believes immigrants are the most hardworking, His son works along side him saying hello with a friendly smile. Loyal customers are bringing their grandchildren. Its like an extended family where people know your name.


    The manager tells a story of fate when he was traveling from New York to LA and his car happened to break down in Dallas around Thanksgiving. It has felt like the right place to be ever since. Coming to work is more than a job, it feels right to be around people who enjoy his authentic New York Russian food like he had as a child. You won't be disappointed if you stop by on your trip to Dallas
