One of Austin’s Best Jewish Delis Will Soon Expand to Houston

Get ready for towering pastrami sandwiches and top-notch bagels from Biderman’s Deli

Biderman’s, an Austin deli known for its top-notch bagels and Jewish deli staples, is headed to Houston with plans to open three locations across the city.

Owner Zach Biderman tells Eater that Biderman’s Deli will hit Houston in the coming months, with outposts planned for River Oaks, Vintage Park, and Orleans Square at Lake Houston. Biderman hasn’t dished on which of those locations will open first, but the locations are set to begin arriving in “late 2021.”

Biderman opened the first outpost of his wildly popular deli in Austin in 2016 as an homage to his grandparents, both Holocaust survivors. Since its debut, Biderman’s expanded to three locations across Austin, though two later closed. The menu is inspired by the beloved foods from Biderman’s childhood, like bagels and lox and corned beef that’s made into towering triple-meat Reuben sandwiches. The deli also serves pastrami breakfast tacos, omelets, and breakfast sandwiches, among other Jewish deli staples.

“We are honored to share our food and legacy with the Houston community, and look forward to serving and connecting with our guests,” Biderman said in a statement.

Corporate entity filings indicate that the River Oaks location could open first, but stay tuned for more details on the much-anticipated arrival of Biderman’s in Houston.

Update: This post has been updated to reflect that two of Biderman’s Austin locations have closed.
