A recent article I submitted to the Dispatch had me thinking about corned beef hash, which had me thinking about delis, and well, here we are. This week’s Three To Try explores three Columbus delis serving breakfast. (Word to the wise: two of them are only open on weekdays, so save them for Mon-Fri exploring.)
1. Katzinger’s Deli – is one of Columbus’ signature delis, with 30 years of history to back them up. They’re mainly known for their big deli sandwiches (reubens!), cheeses, salads, and the big barrels of pickles. But they serve breakfast all day, too: a solid corned beef hash, blintzes, Sammy’s Bagels with smoked salmon, and sticky buns.
2. Danny’s Deli – Danny’s is located in the basement of an office building downtown, with an entrance on Front Street. This makes it feel like a special find; just look for the bright red awning. Their breakfast menu is simple: eggs and bacon, fluffy pancakes, omelets, sandwiches. Corned beef is a big thing on the lunch menu, so it shows up at breakfast as a hash, in breakfast sandwiches, or even as a side.
3. Lexi’s on Third – I haven’t written about Lexi’s on the blog yet, but I’ve been there a number of times because they’re in my building downtown. Like Danny’s (the owners are actually related), they only serve weekdays, and menu is all sandwiches, platters, omelets, with a big focus on corned beef.
