Kathy Chadbourne moved away from Salt Lake City closing the Avenues Bakery after five years in business. “We had a lot of fun but we just couldn’t make any money.
Everything was going into rent.” Chadborne then moved to Ashland, Oregon three years ago and opened a restaurant, but when the economy declined they had to close. Realizing that Salt Lake was becoming a food town Chadbourne returned. There was something very special about the vibe and ambiance that Chadborne and Paul Maurer created. in the Avenues Bakery.
She returned to Salt Lake City to first work at Caputos Deli, then she was hired help remodel the Broadway Market. Now she has teamed up with Randy Harmsen to start the 9th South Delicatessen. “I’ve always loved the delis you find in New York, full of amazing meats and cheeses.” The 9th South deli offers sandwiches starting at $5.95 and up to $12.95 for full. Soups are $2.95.
They offer a large variety of side dishes such as knish and latke (potato pancakes). Pastries are provided by Baked by Jin. DeAnn Tilton makes their bagels. They alos got their Fresh Deli from Pierre Country Bakery & Cafe.
They also offer local artisan chocolates, sodas and a good selection olive oils and vinegars. Randy Harmsen says his vision is “to bring the incredible taste of delicatessens I’ve found around the world to SLC.” Harmsen spent two years traveling around the country sampling foods to determine the best products to carry in his store. I highly recommend their pastrami sandwiches.
