Located at 401 Union St. in the ground floor of the 81-room retro-modern boutique hotel, it’s the first expansion of the much-praised New York City-based Montreal-style Jewish deli from owners Noah Bernamoff and Joel Tietolman.
Chef/partner Adam Grusin, who was previously chef de cuisine at award-winning chef and restaurateur Frank Stitt’s French bistro Chez Fonfon in Birmingham, Ala. for 11 years, tells Eater Nashville that the new location is the “kickoff for the new model for Mile End, taking it in a direction where everything is done in-house.” That includes the bagels, hand-rolled and cooked in honey water; all meats, from turkey to prime rib, smoked and cooked on premises; and everything else in between, from mustard and pickles to breads and pastries (with local writer and pastry chef extraordinaire Lisa Donovan consulting on the latter two).
“This model allows us to serve a better quality product and improve the overall customer experience,” says Grusin. “We feel privileged to be able to bring a true Montreal-style deli to Nashville, and to share those traditions.”
Open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., breakfast is an all day affair, with the lunch/dinner menu kicking in at 11 a.m. Breakfast consists of a number of bagel sandwiches, larger dishes, and omelettes, along with sides and morning cocktails. The lunch and dinner menu features snacks, sandwiches, and entrees, as well as sides and desserts. Check out the full menus below.
