The Daily Dish: City Hall at Moore’s Delicatessen

Today we’d like to introduce you to Burbank’s Moore’s Delicatessen.

What’s the Moore’s Delicatessen story? The who/what/when/where/why?
My grandparents opened the original Moore’s Delicatessen in San Francisco back in 1946. It was open until 1952 when they moved back to Southern California and leaving the restaurant business behind. I started cooking in 1980’s and attended UNLV for Restaurant Management. I also went to Western Culinary Institute in Portland Oregon. From there I cooked my way back to the Los Angeles area. I cooked in the finest restaurant in Portland, Napa, San Francisco and Los Angeles. I would learn for the best (stuff they don’t teach in school). I finally had to get a really job so I help open Staple Center in 1999. The company then promoted Executive Chef of Dodger in 2000. I always kept a picture of the Deli in my office desk drawer and told myself one day I will bring back the Deli. I did so 6 years ago and have loved it ever since.

In speaking with any restaurateurs I’ve come to learn that the restaurant business can be brutal. How has it been for you? What’s been the hardest part?
If you love what you do it’s a true joy. Of course there are rough patches a long the journey. If it was easy everyone would follow the path.

What we love about independent, non-chain restaurants is that the independents bring new ideas forward. What’s interesting or unique about Moore’s Delicatessen
We make or try to make everything from scratch. We make our own Salami, Breakfast Sausage, Chorizo, roast our own turkey and beef. The cartoonist of burbank hangout in the backroom and draw not only on their sketch pads but on the walls.
