An Interview With Lisa Hicks Clark - Zaftigs Corporate Chef

Tucked in the heart of Brookline’s cool little Coolidge Corner neighborhood is Zaftigs Delicatessen – a restaurant that has been famously serving the hipsterish community since before the turn of the 21st century. They list themselves as a “non-Kosher” Jewish style restaurant, making their menu quite expansive – especially considering the fact that they serve breakfast all day (see the Banana-Stuffed French Toast below). Their Corporate Chef, Lisa Hicks Clark, recently answered some questions that I had about Zaftigs Delicatessen in an interview.

Tell me a little bit about the history of Zaftigs:

The Brookline location will be 16 years old this summer. It was opened by Robert Shuman in the year 5757 - which represents the Jewish calendar year 1997. He wanted to open a place that had Jewish cuisine that wasn’t solely kosher, serving upscale Jewish food. From the classic chicken soup the banana stuffed French toast, I feel as if we could be open 24 hours a day with all the tourists and students around here.
