There were once 2,000 Jewish delis in New York City alone. Today, according to Ziggy Gruber, there are only 120 authentic delicatessens in all of North America. One of them is Kenny & Ziggy's New York Deli Restaurant, Gruber's incredibly popular Houston store.

Now Gruber's experience as a third-generation delicatessen owner is being turned into a movie —Deli Man, by director Erik Anjou.

"I went into this business to preserve the culture and the food, and I thought it was wonderful vehicle to show people what this business was all about," Gruber says. "In certain respects today we are assimilated so much. I would say the closest link to the destruction of the first synagogue in Israel is a corned beef sandwich. All our holidays are based on food, our whole culture is based on eating.

"Growing up in a traditional Jewish household and in the food business, even on vacation at breakfast we would discuss what we were eating for lunch and at lunch we'd discuss what we're eating for dinner."

Anjou met the deli owner when he was in Houston screening another film and was impressed by both his deli knowledge — Gruber has a collection of delicatessen menus that dates back to the early 20th century — and by his ebullient personality.
