NEW YORK—The small, yet beloved Jewish delicatessen, Mile End, reopened both locations on Aug. 30 with exciting additions: a new craft beer selection, dinner menu, and table service. Both locations closed earlier last month to renovate. 

Chris Balla, formerly of Bierkraft, joined the team to help launch an extensive craft beer program, serving beers such as Full Sail Session ‘Black Label’ ($7), Labatt Blue ($4), and St Ambroise Apricot Wheat ($6). 

Eli Sussman is now in charge of updating the menu, reported EaterNY. 

Changes in Brooklyn Location

In Brooklyn, the menu and the hours of operation have changed. There is no weekday breakfast and lunch. They are open from 5 p.m. to midnight, Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to midnight on weekends. Don’t worry, they still serve brunch on weekends from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

They also plan to run a “Waterfront Kitchen Collective,” in October.

Mile End owner Noah Bermanoff is partnering with Josh Applestone of Fleisher’s Meats to help rebuild Red Hook’s commissary kitchen that was damaged by Sandy. 

They plan to use a part of the kitchen as a small private dining room to host curated food events.

Upgrades in Manhattan Location 

Mile End on Bond Street has evolved from a take-out spot into a delicatessen, with table service, alcohol, and dinner. 

It is open most days from 10 a.m. to midnight and serves three meals a day.

Brunch at the Bond St. location includes specials such as the Challah french toast with blueberry compote, and the “Mont-Royal” with Latkes, house-cured lox, creme fraiche, and chives. 

The new dinner menu includes small plates, cured meat platters, and larger entrees like veal chops and roasted poussin. 

Mile End opened in Jan. 2010, in a converted garage in Brooklyn with a mission to serve Jewish comfort foods from owner Bermanoff’s nostalgic memories.
