Photo Coverage: New Film DELI MAN Screens at Friars Club

It was an emotional and touching night for lovers of Pastrami, Corned Beef, Lox, White Fish, Blintzes, Pickles, Cole Slaw and Mustard at the Friars last night. Cohen Media Group had the screening of The Movie Deliman in the Milton Berle Room. This film by Erik Greenberg Anjou celebrates 160 years of tradition and great stories by the Jewish Deli owners, operators and fanatics who are keeping the lox sliced thin and the Pastrami hot in the Jewish delicatessens that are still thriving around the world. Besides the food, Ziggy Gruber, operator of Kenny and Ziggy's in Houston, Texas is the star of this funny and heartwarming documentary. The film reflects the heart of a vital ethnic history. It's also a love story, not just about the food, but about the preservation of family, laughter and community that remains a fundamental part of a trip to a Jewish Delicatessen. What better place to see the wonderful film than the Friars Club were those traditions are celebrated every day. After the talk back with Ziggy Gruber, Fyvesh Finkel and Erik Greenberg Anjou, maitre d' Giuseppe Tarillo welcomed everyone into the Frank Sinatra Dinning Room. I guess that's what you call Jewish Fusion. It's great "having what the Friars were having".

Another night which celebrates family at the Friars will be on March 11th when host Jamie deRoy & friends Show will be all about Family Ties. It features Haley Steinbrenner Swindal, Stacy Sullivan and daughter Savanah Brown, Husband and Wife Ray Marchica and Nina Hennessey, Grandmother & Grandson Angela Bacardi and Nicolas King and Husband and Wife Eric Comstock and Barbara Fasano. The evening is produced by Jamie and Laura Slutsky with Raon Abel musical director and Barry Kleinbort, director
