Welcome to the Delicatessens group of SmartGuy.com. Feel free to interact with other professionals from across the world. You can find professionals, find deals on services, find professionals who might barter, or simple post questions, comments, or suggestions. A delicatessen or deli is often a combined grocery store and a restaurant. Delis offer a broader, fresher menu than fast-food chains, rarely employing fryers, other than perhaps for chicken or reheating some meats, and routinely preparing sandwiches to order. They may also serve hot foods from a steam table, similar to a cafeteria.
