When we opened Mile End, our tiny Brooklyn restaurant, we had a mission: to share the classic Jewish comfort food of our childhood. Using our grandmothers’ recipes as a starting point, we updated traditional dishes and elevated them with fresh ingredients and from-scratch cooking techniques.
Both a Jewish delicatessen and a Canadian-style restaurant, we pride ourselves on bringing two very unique cuisines to New Yorkers. Dishes such as Montreal-style smoked meat, homemade hotdogs with tangy kraut, poutine, fresh whitefish salad, and a wacky foie gras cinnamon bun sandwich speak to both sources of inspiration. Beyond tradition, our food is lovingly prepared with the highest quality ingredients along with hormone and antibiotic-free meat and fish.
We are humbled by the attention we've garnered from these media outlets: The NY Times, NY Magazine, Eater NY, Food & Wine, Saveur, Bon Appétit, The New Yorker, Timeout, Zagat, Vice Munchies and more.

All our food is made with the highest quality ingredients and uses organic, hormone-free meat. Our meat is locally sourced and cured at our facility in Vermont and then shipped to our restaurants where we then smoke and serve them to our fans.
THE COOK BOOK
In The Mile End Cookbook, the Bernamoffs share warm memories of cooking with their families and the traditions and holidays that inspire recipes like blintzes with seasonal fruit compote; chicken salad whose secret ingredient is fresh gribenes; veal schnitzel kicked up with pickled green tomatoes and preserved lemons; tsimis that’s never mushy; and cinnamon buns made with challah dough. Noah and Rae also celebrate homemade delicatessen staples and share their recipes and methods for pickling, preserving, and smoking just about anything.
For every occasion, mood, and meal, these are recipes that any home cook can make, including:
SMOKED AND CURED MEAT AND FISH
