Kenny & Zuke's Delicatessen Restaurant Review: Ken Gordon and Nick Zukin, longtime local food purveyors, serve authentic Jewish deli favorites, including many that are house-made with artisan care. Portland residents and tourists from the hip Ace Hotel next door flock to the glassed-in downtown spot for egg creams and Cel-Ray soda, fresh bagels and bialys, vats of puckery pickles, and foot-tall sandwiches. Crispy round potato latkes are accompanied by chunky homemade applesauce and sour cream; pastrami is cured five days, smoked ten hours and steamed for three hours; and breakfast is served all day. The menu also includes some salads. Waitstaff is friendly and the mood casual and relaxed. Northwest Portland also happily claims a deli annex, Kenny & Zuke's Bagelworks. Another annex, the Deli Bar in Northeast Portland, serves coffee and bagels in the morning and craft cocktails in the evening.
