Nosh on New York Classics at this Jewish Inspired Deli, The Nosh Pit in St. Pete

Nosh on New York Classics at this Jewish Inspired Deli, The Nosh Pit in St. Pete

I noshed on a handful of scrumptious bites at The Nosh Pit and I seriously can’t wait to go back. Along with deli classics, you’ll also find fresh soups and salads, tasty sides, New York deli meat, and so much more. It’s the perfect lunch spot and although you have to travel outside of DTSP to visit, it’s well worth it.

From the same owners as The Wheelhouse, The Nosh Pit brings a New York Jewish deli to life here in the Burg. The food is fresh, the staff is friendly, and the tables are full. Fun fact, they source their meats directly from New York. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Before I dive into it, I have to share a story. Kevin, Lori and I were messaging the other day and Kevin mentioned that the corned beef sandwich at The Nosh Pit is the talk of the town, according to our St. Petersburg Foodies Restaurant Reviews Facebook group. Apparently, everyone says they have the best corned beef sandwich in St. Pete. As we’re talking about it, Lori and I both admitted that we have never had a corned beef sandwich. Being from the New York area (New Jersey), of course, Kevin has, but he hasn’t tried one at The Nosh Pit…yet. He was actually shocked that neither Lori or I have never had a corned beef sandwich, and warned us to not admit that to anybody. Surprisingly enough, there’s actually never been a review or mention of this popular sandwich from any place on our website until now.

I’m happy to announce that the tender, flavorful, and iconic Corned Beef Classic at The Nosh Pit is indeed amazing. Naturally, I ordered two and they were prepared differently.

The one I quickly scarfed down was the Corned Beef Classic on rye bread with deli mustard. You can also add cheese if you please. For my side, I ordered the Shoestring Fries and New York Style Potato Salad which is a mix of creamy mayo, vinegar, onion purée, parsley, carrots and seasonings. Every bite was amazing. The fries were perfectly crispy and an easy side to much on in between bites of the corned beef sandwich.

Aunty Karen ordered a Corned Beef Reuben which is topped with Swiss, 1000 island dressing and kraut with Greek pasta salad as her side. You have a third option of ordering the corned beef Rachael style which is topped with Swiss, 1000 island and slaw. This classic hit all of our cravings with smothered Swiss cheese and saurekraut. The Greek pasta salad was really good too with just the right amount of dressing and toppings.

In addition to the classics we all know and love, they have a St. Pete inspired sandwich menu section as well. Some familiar sandwich names include The Sunken Gardens, Pass-A-Grilled Cheese, The Coliseum and more. The Dali caught my eye because anything and everything with prosciutto always sounds good to me.

The Dali sandwich has prosciutto, roasted red pepper, melted manchego cheese and roasted garlic aioli on a pressed hoagie. Each bite got better and better as I neared the end. The flavors from each ingredient paired so nicely with the next. I ordered this with a side of classic Mac salad. The creaminess is unmatched.

For all my salad lovers out there, The Nosh Pit has a huge menu section just for you. The Upstate Chicken Salad has romaine lettuce, blue cheese crumbles, buffalo grilled chicken, onion, carrots and celery. This salad was huge and even when shared between two people, there was still some leftover. The smothered buffalo chicken was tasty with a little kick and I really enjoyed it. The other ingredients that made up this salad were very fresh and vibrant.

The piping hot matzo ball soup at The Nosh Pit was incredible with a savory broth and two light and airy matzo balls. This bowl of soup is ridiculously good down to every last slurp.

Who doesn’t love a crisp chip? I have a hard time resisting chips, there’s just something about a salty crunch that I can’t say no to. These addicting house chips were light, crisp and salted in the best way. I’d recommend ordering these as your side if you too love chips.

The Poblano soup of the day caught my eye and let me tell you, it was incredible. Very similar to a tortilla soup, this had so much flavor in every spoonful. Be sure to check what their soup of the day is for a nice comfort side.

The Nosh Pit is a "Jew-ish" style deli located in west St. Pete that serves direct from NY meats.

DISCLAIMER: Kevin, Lori, Abby, Haley, Lindsey & Mahika do not dine anonymously (this would be impossible) and we sometimes get free food (though never expected). However, we dine with the locals and we support our own. You will always get honesty in a respectful manner. We do not include any large national or regional chains in our ratings and reviews. We focus on independent locally owned eateries exclusively.

PLEASE NOTE: Reviews reflect a certain moment in time. Some restaurants stay extremely consistent over many years, and some change for the better or worse. Some things that may change are: chefs, recipes, food suppliers, ingredients, philosophies, ownership, etc. We always hope that you have the same good, or great experience we had.

  • Transplant from NYC 21 years ago. Grew up eating at Katz for lunch and many times a week dinner too! Those are memories you do not forget because Katz was more than good food.
    I’ve tried Joel’s, tried The Nosh Pit. Sorry, I have a 74 year old well honed for Jewish deli food and these places are very nice, clean with some good choices, BUT do not come close to the NY deli food taste that I know so well and miss so much.
    Wishing you good luck.☘
