Family-Style Restaurant

By Dickson Ward

Sixth Avenue and about West 54th Street in Manhattan isn’t as far as you might think! In fact, it may be “right around the corner,” no matter where you live or work in the desert. Sherman’s Deli & Bakery has two locations: on Tahquitz Canyon Way in Palm Springs and at Country Club Drive and Monterey Avenue in Palm Desert. The California State Senate and Assembly, the Supervisors of Riverside County, and Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce named Sherman’s Delicatessen & Bakery “Restaurant of the Year” and “Voted the No. 1 Sandwich in the Desert.”

You’ll find all the same unbeatable foods as those legendary New York delis with menu favorites like New York–style Hot Pastrami Sandwich with sliced turkey and Swiss cheese, Lox and Cream Cheese on a Bagel, and Matzo Ball Soup.

Patrons obviously consider Sherman’s a permanent part of the desert restaurant scene, but owners Sam and his sister Janet never take their customers for granted. Their menu is an absolute delight with notes and amusing side dishes throughout. There are sumptuous deli platters (to go or to stay), which, the menu says, “Give our chef a chance to show off” and “Everything is served with pride.” Under Beef’n’Latkas, you’ll note that a corned beef sandwich can be made with two of their famous potato pancakes instead of bread.

From 4 to 6 p.m. (7 p.m. in summer), specials include New York Steak, BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Baked Chicken, Calves Liver and Onions, all with choice of soup, salad or potato. Endless choices start from just $11.95. All the bakery items are baked on the premises including gluten-free cookies and cakes by the famous pastry chef Felix Diaz.

California wines are available as are domestic and imported beers. Casual attire is the order of the day. Bring a hearty appetite and settle in for what promises to be a memorable gastronomical experience. When it’s all over, you might leave Sherman’s singing, “I’ll take Manhattan (in Palm Springs or Palm Desert), the Bronx, and Staten Island too!”

Custom full-service catering available. Open 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Breakfast served all day.
