St. Mary Medical Center announced that The Borscht Belt Delicatessen, a New York-style Jewish deli located in Newtown, has opened a new location in the St. Mary cafeteria. Open to patients, visitors and employees, its hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Borscht Belt menu at St. Mary features iconic Ess-a-Bagels from New York City, classic sandwiches, a selection of specialty sandwiches and more. Known for its commitment to excellence and delectable menu options, The Borscht Belt Delicatessen’s collaboration with St. Mary Medical Center represents a major enhancement to the hospital’s dining experience.
“We are thrilled to offer a variety of delicious new menu offerings from The Borscht Belt Delicatessen right here in the St. Mary Medical Center cafeteria,” said Suzette Cunicelli, vice president of professional and support services at St. Mary. “Just as we strive to provide the highest level of patient care possible, we also prioritize the patient experience. The convenient availability of high-quality food options is a big part of that experience.”
A ribbon-cutting event was held in the cafeteria at 10 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 13. Attendees were treated to free samples of a variety of bagels and spreads from the Borscht belt.
Bucks County native and celebrity chef Nick Liberato, co-founder and executive chef at the Borscht Belt, was present at the grand opening. After building a successful catering career in Los Angeles and appearing on several food-themed television shows, Liberato returned home to Bucks County in 2020 to form a hospitality group that launched the original Borscht Belt location in Stockton, New Jersey, in June 2021. The Borscht Belt moved to its current location in Newtown in May.
“At The Borscht Belt Delicatessen, we’re excited to join forces with St. Mary Medical Center, bringing some favorites from our menu to their cafeteria,” said Liberato. “We’re here to provide the hospital with the comfort that great food provides.”
