They're trying anything they can think of: egg white omelets, jalapeno bagels, gluten-free rugelach, even Korean bibimbap, but nothing has been able to stem the receding tide of the American Jewish deli. How do you convince people to pay $20 for a sandwich and drink when Quiznos will fill you up for $5? The day of the Jewish deli is long gone, a relic of a different era with different priorities, and it's never coming back, though there'll always be a few remaining holdouts to serve those who choose to remember. Read more in the Los Angeles Times. Pictured above, by billyboy, is a counter lineup of sandwiches ready to be brought to customers at New York's famed Carnegie Deli (see the Roadfood.com review).

Sad but true. The entire demographic is changing. Growing up on the north side of Chicago I was able to taste a wide variety of ethinic cusines. The Jewish deli being the standout. Can't get anything like that here in Austin.
