Zingerman's Delicatessen Restaurant Review: Zingerman's is not just an Ann Arbor institution; it's a world-class gourmet food emporium, offering the likes of olive oil from Lago di Garda, fancy artisan cheeses, an immense array of sausages and German mustard. Located in an historic building, the deli and next-door café stay jam-packed day and night. Warm, hearth-baked breads from Zingerman's own bakery --- including one spiked with a locally brewed Steelhead Red Ale --- share shelf space with vinegars, French olives, brownies and European chocolates plus their own products like marshmallows and peanut butter. Students, tourists and regulars queue up for giant corned beef and pastrami sandwiches on rye, homemade chopped liver on challah or free-range-turkey sandwiches with cranberry chutney. During warm weather, enjoy these goodies and more at picnic tables outside; or, in less clement weather, settle in at tables in the adjoining café-coffee bar. Take a class and learn to make breads, cakes or pies, or attend Camp Bacon, a four-day extravaganza for bacon lovers.
