Our story? Seriously? Got a minute, ‘cause this might take a while.
Caplansky’s Deli was born from the desire for a great smoked meat sandwich. Simple as that. In the summer of 2007, Zane Caplan, as I was known at the time, had a serious hankering for a Schwartz’s smoked meat sandwich. Schwartz’s is a world-famous Montreal deli. If you’ve never been there: go. If you’ve been you’ll understand how the taste stays with you, in many cases, for life. It’s that good.
