Watch: Making Brisket-Topped Poutine at Mile End Deli

These dressed-up fries are totally over the top

Despite only opening in 2010, Mile End Deli has quickly become a favorite destination for Jewish deli food in New York City. Owner Noah Bernamoff dreamt up this restaurant concept during law school, when he was smoking meats on his roof and curing salami in a closet. After his grandmother died, he fused his Montreal-style recipes with Jewish tradition as a way to pay homage to her cooking — and thus, Mile End was born.

In the six years since, the original deli in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn has expanded to a second location in Manhattan. Both spaces are known for their smoked meat sandwiches, sausages, and on occasion, a dramatic plate of poutine. Watch the video above to see the assembly of Mile End's truly decadent dish of Montreal-style fries, topped with a serious portion of Bernamoff's house-smoked brisket.
