Rosenfeld’s deli to open Wednesday in Rehoboth


Rosenfeld’s Jewish Delicatessen will open its doors on Wednesday in Rehoboth Beach, the restaurant’s website reported.

The business will occupy new space off Route 1.

The restaurant will initially operate from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and from May 4th on will operate between 7:30 a.m. and 9 p.m.


Rosenfeld’s offers a full menu of New York-style Jewish deli offerings for breakfast, lunch and dinner that include stuffed pastrami, turkey and brisket sandwiches as well as Matzo Ball soup, stuffed cabbage and chopped liver.

The restaurant was the second for Warren Rosenfeld, who opened the first location in Ocean City, Md. in 2013. Rosenfeld’s also has a food truck that has been a frequent visitor to the Rehoboth area.

Rosenfeld’s marks a continuing trend by Ocean City restaurants to add locations to the north. Rehoboth Beach is an attractive market, due to a growing year-round population and successful efforts to extend the tourist season.

It will be the first full Jewish delicatessen to operate in Delaware in many years Wilmington-area residents now travel to Philadelphia for such fare.

Wilmington event producer Barry Schlecker said he worked at Jack Lundy’s on Second Street between Orange and Tatnall, Another downtown deli was Gamiels. Both moved to north Wilmington.

Both later closed and northern Delaware deli fans had to travel to establishments in Philadelphia and the suburbs.

New York City delis have become rarer as well, due in part to family members who are no longer willing to work the long hours and soaring rents in the city.
