One word: Meshugah Fries. Okay that’s two. But when a potato is cooked in schmaltz, fried, covered in Russian dressing, sauerkraut, cheese curds and bits of pastrami, BiteClub tends to get a little, well, mashugana (meaning crazy in Yiddish).
We mentioned a couple weeks ago that local chefs Les and Tara Goodman of Adafina Culinary were planning an authentic Jewish deli at the West End Farm Market (Sundays from 10a.m. to 2p.m. at 817 Donahue, Santa Rosa), but that’s not the half of it.
Goodman’s Jewish Deli is a little bit of NYC in Wine Country with chocolate egg creams, celery soda (a new one for me, but interesting), homemade pastrami, chocolate babka, matzoh ball soup and the aforementioned Meshugah fries. The menu will change up weekly, so go with the flow. But we hear there might be some Sephardic hash and salmon schmear. And (sigh) Montreal-style bagels in the future!
