Russell Street Deli

313-567-2900  •  $
ADDRESS: 2465 Russell St, Detroit, MI 48207

CUISINE: Breakfast, Deli, Sandwiches, Farm to Table

FEATURES: Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly

DETAILS

This shotgun-style restaurant isn't for diners who want a quiet meal alone. Detroit dines together at increasingly jammed tables as the lunch hour picks up, and strangers seated next to each other dive deep into conversations about anything from movies to metaphysics. Even the waitstaff joins in the dialogue, and locals often joke that a degree is required to be a busboy at Russell Street Deli. During the week, Russell Street serves up classic deli sandwiches (Reubens, chicken salad, salami, etc.), salads and a rotating selection of soups. The spectacular and wildly popular breakfast, particularly on Saturdays, features more unusual dishes such as French toast made from raisin bread, and Havarti, asparagus and dill omelets.

Cash only. No alcohol available. Serving breakfast (until 10:30 am Mon-Fri, until closing Sat) and lunch Mon-Sat. Closed Sun.

"This is a fine cafeteria-style sandwich and soup spot, with long tables to share. Proprietor Bob Cerrito, who also runs the neighboring Flat Planet Pizza, uses fresh seasonal and regional ingredients as much as possible."- Gayot
