Mamaleh's: a Yiddish word which is a term of endearment for a young child. Also a modern era Jewish Delicatessen in Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA opened Summer 2016
Delicatessen smells, tastes and even the word itself may put a smile on your face. We hope when you walk through our front doors that your smile widens, your nostrils flare, and you sidle up to a counter stool or sink into a booth and sink your teeth into a hand sliced pastrami sandwich, half-sour pickle, warming matzah ball soup or a beautiful fresh take on a deli salad. We welcome you to join us for a quick meal or a nosh, an old fashioned soda, egg cream or a milkshake. Visit with an old friend over a cocktail at the bar or make a new one. NU?! Eat something already.

Meet the Team
- Rachel Miller Munzerowner / mother henRachel Miller Munzer owner / mother hen
Has spent the last 10 years reconciling with the fact that she’s a restaurant owner. Her two favorite moments during this time were buying Monistat 7 for a line cook and spending the night washing dishes while 8 months pregnant. She has found that despite looking like “one of those girls with a yoga mat” that squeezing in a yoga class helps her keep balance. If she were stuck on a desert island she would want her two daughters and handy husband there, as well as an infinite supply of popcorn, eggs, and cereal.
