David Sax traveled the world in search of an authentic deli, examining the cuisine that was once at the center of Jewish culture. Did he find one? Learn whether his search was successful today at the Mizel Center for Arts and Culture, 350 South Dahlia Street, at a special deli lunch with Sax, where he'll discuss his new book, Save the Deli: In Search of Perfect Pastrami, Crusty Rye, and the Heart of Jewish Delicatessen. Admission is $20 and the luncheon starts at noon. Call 303-316-6360 or visit http://maccjcc.org.
To read Lori Midson's take on Sax's blog -- including local delis that Sax included in his book -- see her Cafe Society story from October.
