Zak Stern (aka Zak the Baker) has become legendary in Miami. His kosher baked goods are beloved, and deservedly so. At the beginning of 2017, without fanfare, Stern turned his bakery space into an Eastern European style deli/restaurant—making kosher corned beef and gravlax sandwiches and potato kugels—overseen by twenty-five-year-old chef Melissa Sosa, who spent the past few years working for Stern. The deli started selling out right away. It’s worth going to the bakery, too, which is in a bigger space, just a block away. (The croissants are perfectly crispy, buttery, light.)
