After starting out as a pickle company and a series of pop-ups, the newest iteration of Schneider is a small (borderline cramped) Jewish deli in River North. In addition to latkes, pizza bialys, and sandwiches piled with thick slices of meat, Schneider Deli has breakfast options like bagels and lox. There’s also a variety of pastries and seltzer on tap for egg creams. The sandwiches are particularly good, especially the pastrami or corned beef done reuben-style, and they come with a housemade pickle spear. But it’s hard to justify dropping $15 for a 4 oz pastrami sandwich, especially if you have to get your food to go.
