The wide-ranging menu at Mamaleh’s Delicatessen, the latest from the team that brought you State Park, hits all the right notes to the Jewish deli and vintage soda fountain fans: There are chewy bagels, smoked fish and schmears, chopped chicken liver, kugel, substantial seasonal salads, hearty rye, salty pastrami and spicy mustard, phosphates, milkshakes, and house-made sodas in flavors like lemon cardamom, and pineapple lactart.

With a tchotchke shop, temptations like rugelach, babka, and black and white cookies, plus a full bar with creative cocktails and spiked specialities, European beers, wines by the glass, and more, there’s a lot to take in. So, it’s great news that Mamaleh’s launches dinner service tonight, giving you more time to check it out it all week long.

Dinner was always in the business plan, which co-owners Rachel Miller Munzer and Alon Munzer, John Kessen, Evan Harrison, Heather Mojer, and Tyler and Rachel Sundet have had in mind for years. As the first new school, truly modern Jewish delicatessen in the Boston area (a la Russ and Daughters Cafe in New York City), a bar program is a prominent feature, curated by Mojer and Harrison. Check out the full beverage menu below.

The evening meal features the same deli fare available from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Specials will be introduced soon, and chef Tyler Sundet is updating the salad case for fall this week, too. Dinner is served Tuesday-Saturday until 10 p.m. Sunday hours remain 8 a.m.-4 p.m., and Mamaleh’s is closed on Mondays.
