Phyl’s Deli is now open near 10th and Howard Streets in the Old Market.

The eatery offers handcrafted sandwiches and sides such as housemade kosher pickles and Zapp’s potato chips. It took over the space that was vacated by Ahmad’s Persian Cuisine a couple of years ago.

The menu for its soft opening includes sandwiches such as the Reuben; the Rami, with pastrami, swiss and caramelized onions with oatmeal stout whole-grain mustard on Phyl’s signature rye bread; and the Little Italy, with coppa, suppressa, fontina and butter on a roll.

Bread served at Phyl’s comes from Omaha’s Lithuanian Bakery.

Phyl’s also has some Jewish deli favorites such as noodle kugel, matzo ball soup and an everything bagel with veggie cream cheese and smoked lox.
