About

Shep’s Delicatessen is an ode to traditional NYC-style Jewish delicatessens, located in Five Points, East Nashville, open Tuesday through Sunday. Expect to see dishes like potato latkes, kishka, mac and cheese pancakes, homemade pastrami and corned beef, pickles, and chopped liver – but the menu will also feature delicious, traditional sandwiches and beverages like the New York Egg Cream (chocolate or vanilla syrup, milk, and seltzer water). As an ode to Nashville, you’ll also see a few Southern twists, like loaded reuben fries, schmear on a biscuit, or eggs with grits with smoked salmon.

Whether you are dining in with us social-distance style, carrying out your meal, arranging for catering for your upcoming event, ordering delivery (coming soon), our menu has something for everyone!
