Delancey Steet - Deli & Bagels
On the southwest side of Ocala there are numerous retirement communities which contain thousands of people, many of them migrating to this area from New York or elsewhere in the northeast where it's cold and snowy during the winter.
These are people who are used to and very fond of delicatessens which offer a variety of bagels and lox and meats and breads and other such.
Up until recently, we had no delicatessens on the southwest side of Ocala. That led to a certain amount of grumbling, especially among old-timers in barber shops, in thrift stores, and on golf courses.
Then, all of a sudden, Delancey Street showed up. Delancey Street was soon followed by Darrell's Diner (with two locations). Now, not only do we have a diner, but we have several to choose from. It's heavenly!
Delancey Street is featured in this post and is located in a small shopping center within walking distance of the famed On Top of the World Community.
