   Stein's Market & Deli
Face it, New Orleans is filled with more than just Creoles and LSU fans and for better or worse, many of us have come from the Northeast. Such is the case with Stein's Market and Deli; unquestionably for the better. In a city filled with all manner of things fried then stuffed inside thick loaves of white baguette it is a damn good day when you find hot pastrami, Swiss, and slaw on seeded rye. Philly's pennants, Tastycakes, and Herr's chips speak to Stein's heritage of brotherly love but don't let the back home goodies steal your attention from the comprehensive beer, beverage, charcuterie, cheese, and grocery selections (and leave your Stallone impressions at the door). The menu gets changed up with weekly specials (Whiz withs on Tuesdays, Chicago style Italian beef on Saturdays, and a pork sandwich with broccoli rabe tossed in for good measure). Stein's is a neighborhood classic in a city all about its neighborhoods: neither wanting nor waiting for recognition, free of pretenses, damn good food and full of personality. They're just a market with a deli that likes to turn out good food to good people. And they'll stay that way.
