Explore how Jewish immigrants imported and adapted traditions to create a uniquely American restaurant. Through neon signs, menus, advertisements, uniforms, photographs, and clips of delis on the big and little screen, the exhibition traces the historical roots of the American Jewish deli to its place in pop culture.
