About Kenny & Zuke’s
Opened in October 2007 by founder Ken Gordon, Kenny & Zuke’s is a Jewish-style delicatessen featuring many housemade ingredients from pastrami and corned beef to pickles, bagels and rye bread. After starting a successful venture at the Hillsdale Farmer’s Market selling pastrami, Ken began offering Saturday brunch at Ken’s restaurant, Ken’s Place. He renamed the venture Kenny & Zuke’s Delicatessen and now has three locations in Portland, including Kenny & Zuke’s Bagelworks and Kenny & Zuke’s Deli Bar, which opened on Sept. 12, 2012. Gourmet Magazine called the deli “One of the top 10 delis in the country,” they were featured in The New York Times Dining Section in “Can the Jewish Deli be Reformed” and The Oregonian named the Pastrami Burger one of the city’s “Best Bites.” Ken Gordon is writing a weekly column for The Oregonian,“Diary of a “Formerly” Diabetic Chef,” which chronicles his journey to reverse his recent diagnosis of Type II Diabetes, the old fashioned way through healthy eating and exercise. Kenny & Zuke’s Deli Bar is located at 3901 N. Williams Ave., Portland, Ore., open from 7 a.m. to midnight Monday – Thursday, Saturday 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Sunday 8 a.m. to midnight and serves breakfast, lunch, happy hour, dinner and dessert.
