Kosher Foods on the Rise: Where’s the Best NJ Deli?

As Passover is being celebrated this week, have you noticed how much more kosher food is finding its way into the mainstream?

Newark-based Manischewitz, the country’s largest manufacturer of processed kosher foods, announced it had been bought by Sankaty Advisors, a division of Bain Capital.

Alexi Friedman reports in the Star Ledger:

 Kosher foods have averaged more than 10 percent sales growth in the U.S. over the past five years and, among the 12.2 million customers who bought kosher products nationwide last year, more than half did so for “health and safety” reasons, not religious ones, according to a survey by Lubicom Marketing and Consulting, which specializes in the kosher industry.

Moving from Union City to Marlboro, I became a fan of kosher food as a teenager. I also became a huge fan of Deli. In fact many times I would make the ‘sacred pilgrimage” to Katz Deli in New York for some incredible corned beef and pastrami.  You know you’re at Katz when you see the sign “Send a salami to your boy in the Army”

But where are the best delis in New Jersey? If you know of one, please comment below
