The team behind Solomon’s Deli, which was scheduled to open in downtown Sacramento this spring, announced that a second location of the Jewish deli will be opening in Davis in May. The Sacramento opening has been pushed back to summer.
“We had an opportunity that we couldn’t refuse and we took it,” said Jami Goldstene, one of Solomon’s owners. “We open in the Davis Commons in downtown Davis (500 I St.), hopefully within the next three weeks. Smallish spot with a somewhat smaller menu than the Sacramento location, but we will have all the greatest hits and favorites.”
Meanwhile, as a teaser, she offered up a few tidbits.
Solomon’s owners will be partnering with Dan Graf of Berkeley’s Baron Baking to bake their own bagels. They also are working with RC Provisions for their pastrami and corned beef; RC also supplies its award-winning pastrami to Langer’s Delicatessen in Los Angeles.
Other menu items: house-smoked sturgeon and lox, matzah ball soup, and vegan and vegetarian options.
Solomon’s Deli is named after Tower Records founder Russ Solomon, who died in March. The Sacramento location will occupy the site of the original Tower Records location on K Street.
