Deli / Bodega
$$
“Josh's Deli is a "jewish" deli in Surfside, very close to the beach. I say "jewish" because Josh's is nothing like the New York delis that we think of when we classify something as a jewish deli. Josh's place is a little more . . . how do I say this . . . friendly and modern. That said, Josh makes pastrami and corned beef like the best of them. His menu offers modern takes on some classic deli staples and is a great place for brunch/lunch after a night on South Beach. My favorite thing to do after eating at Josh's is to stroll over to the beach and let the food coma take over. ”
