Along Cass Street in Tampa is a new deli, with an old-fashioned style. It's simply called Cass Street Deli.
What they don’t make here, they get from the best sources—sometimes straight from New York City. They pride themselves on their pastrami, which takes days to prepare.
Cass Street Deli along with Maker Mark Serve The Servers
Through the Maker Mark Relief Program, recognizing the extremes needs of the Restaurant Industry become a part of the Lee Initiative. This intiative has centered around the unsurmountable needs of servers, chefs, bar tenders and all industry workers to provide help.
From Makers Mark Website:
Due to the closure of restaurants across America, thousands of restaurant workers have an urgent need for assistance. Independent restaurants are at the center of the vibrant growth in America. For the past decade, we have relied on the convivial and dynamic hospitality of the independent restaurant scene to make this a city that we are incredibly proud of. Restaurant workers need your help more than ever. It is vital that we offer relief to those in need, so after this crisis restaurants can return to their full vibrancy.
In partnership with @makersmark and @leeinitiative @chefedwardlee we have turned restaurants across the country into relief centers with local chefs for any restaurant worker who has been laid off or has had a significant reduction in hours and/or pay. We are offering help for those in need of food and supplies. Each night, we will pack hundreds of to-go meals that people can come to pick up and take home.
Cass Street Deli is not a short drive from my home. But, how can I go wrong with a Cass Street Deli Pastrami Sandwich along with Cripy Fried Potato Cake?
