“Zappola’s twist on the Jewish deli features a straightforward menu of soups, sandwiches and sides that are inspired by the neighborhood around it. There’s matzo ball soup, a lox platter with house pickles, and a roster of tantalizing sandwiches built around brisket, smoked turkey, lox, tuna salad and a breaded chicken schnitzel.”

“…Lox, Stock and Brisket, which opened along Cedar Road in University Heights in April, takes many of those Old World traditions and gives them a modern twist. Inside the casual spot, you’ll find a menu of hearty sandwiches and, of course, matzo ball soup.”

"Pulling from the local community and his history is something evident within the store. Zappola has sandwiches named after his Jewish childhood friends, the Rueben and the Boro, as well as Rueben’s mother, the Roz."
