Food. Curated. and Edible Queens team up to bring you this intimate story about the beauty of tradition in food...classic Jewish delicatessen food.

Meet Jay Parker, owner of Ben's Best Delicatessen, a 3rd generation deli owner in Rego Park, Queens - and one of the last remaining Kosher delis in the industry. Jay took over the family business from his father over 30 years ago knowing that the key to success was leaving his 100+ year old family recipes unchanged.

Enjoy this feel-good peek into the life of a passionate deli operator. The food looks so good, you can almost taste the hot pastrami and corned beef being shaved off the meat slicer...
