Hobby’s Delicatessen, one of the last remaining traditional delis in Newark, N.J., has been in the Brummer family since 1962.
Hobby’s Delicatessen in downtown Newark may have lost much of its more traditional clientele over the years, but it has held on to tradition. The corned beef and the tongue are cured for 14 days in stainless steel bins in the basement. The salamis hanging on the wall look as if they’ve been drying there, their flavor intensifying, since the Brummer family bought the place in 1962. – from NYTimes
