Montclair, NJ – Montclair’s legendary Watchung Deli, opened in 1926 and sadly closed in 2020, but the stories and recipes live on in a new book by Robert and Jeanne Johannsen.
The enduring delicatessen had many owners in its close to 100 years in business, but from 1999 to 2015, it had been owned by two couples — the Johannsens along with Gary and Maureen Kiffer.
Meet Robert and Jeanne Johannsen this Sunday, June 5 at 2 p.m. at Watchung Booksellers and get your copy of their keepsake book of stories and recipes! Bring family, friends, and anyone in Montclair who grew up eating their famous sandwiches including the Angry Dwarf.
