On the hunt for authentic deli in SLC? Head over to Main Street!
As the dry air rises above 100 degrees in the valley and the smoke floats over the Wasatch Mountain range, the minds of those strolling down State Street in Salt Lake City may not be occupied with finding an authentic cut of corned beef. Utahns perhaps tend to prefer a juicy crown burger to a roast beef sub and a cup of fry sauce to some spicy deli mustard, but some committed deli fanatics need their deli no matter their geography.
East coasters here in the mountain west may search far and wide with little success for some tasty cold cuts, some jarred pepporcini, maybe some cigarettes on the side. While a luxury on every corner in Philadelphia or New York, a hole in the wall deli can be hard to find and even harder to enjoy in the great state of Utah. Luckily, hungry East coast transplants and locals with good taste need to look no further than the Grove Market and Deli to find their fix.
Complete with a retro electric sign and a lunch line out the door, this slice of New York is well worth the wait through any given Saturday rush. If you’re looking for a sensational sandwich and the nostalgic clacking of a single tape electric cash register, your haven is on the corner of Main Street & Grove Avenue.
You can order a made to order sandwich from the back, shop the front for produce, select your favorite pickled foods from amongst the array of jars, or shop for the best marinara for your next Italian night. Enjoy!
