Stopsky’s Deli collects accolades, keeps it fresh

The Jewish deli next to the iconic Island Books has had a busy year. Stopsky’s Deli was named as one of four best “New Jewish Delicatessens” in the September issue of Bon Appetit magazine.

Stopsky’s has implemented changes to keep their offerings and service fresh.

The deli will now be open for dinner on Sundays. On Mondays, it will close at 3.

The restaurant will celebrate Yom Kippur on Wednesday evening with a very special “break the fast” tasting menu. A first of its kind in the area, it will feature both Sephardic and Ashkenazic-inspired dishes (Seattle is home to both). Seatings for the tasting are set for 6 and 8 p.m.

“A lot of what Bon Appetit magazine is writing about in terms of 'tradition, update' is exemplified in our dinner menu, which changes quarterly,” owner Jeff Sanderson said.
