In this week's feature, Clarissa Buch explores the history of Miami's delicatessens and their newfound popularity. At Stephen's Restaurant in Hialeah, owner Jack Frisch has plans to renovate the 63-year-old establishment and transform the restaurant into a “gastrobar” concept in the evening with a fully stocked bar, live music, and extended hours. “I want to keep the menu relatively the same,” Frisch says. “Basically, I just want to update the place, like give it a modern and industrial look with a slight retro feel: something you might see in New York nowadays.”
