Schwartz’s Deli
Schwartz’s Deli

Open since 1928, the world-famous Schwartz’s is a Montreal classic and the oldest deli in Canada. Schwartz’s staff credits the unique flavor of their smoked meat to its original recipe of spices, mandatory 10-day meat curing time, the high turnover of their meat, and their brick smokehouse covered with more than eight decades of buildup. Schwartz’s is also credited with creating Montreal steak seasoning or Montreal steak spice. Morris "The Shadow" Sherman, a broiler man working at Schwartz's in the 1940s and '50s, began adding the deli smoked meat pickling spices to his own rib and liver steaks. It was so popular it was copied by other Montreal delis and steakhouses and the rest is history.
