Keep Westword Free

Reader: The Grateful Gnome Will Make This Jersey Native Happy Like Fughhedaboutit

We've just sent the Best of Denver 2016 off to the printer, and already have a file full of possibilities for the Best of Denver 2017 — places that were too new to consider for this year's edition, or have yet to open but are eagerly anticipated. The Grateful Gnome, for example, a deli that's moving into the Red Door space in Berkeley.  Who knew Denverites were so ready for a New Jersey deli? Says Jilliane:

This Jersey girl hopes she can order a Taylor ham egg American cheese on a Kaiser roll or a butter roll on the go!!

Adds Jeff:

 This New York transplant gracefully welcomes a deli from across the river!

Concludes Brendan: 

This Jersey native is happy like fughhedaboutit.

Have you been to a New Jersey deli? What's your favorite deli in Denver?
