Owners of downtown St. Petersburg’s The Wheelhouse are opening The Nosh Pit, a New York-style Jewish deli in West St. Petersburg on the corner of Park Street N. and Tyrone Boulevard.

On Thursday, the Nosh Pit, located in the Lighthouse Plaza, uploaded its anticipated menu to Facebook, and it includes a load of Jewish deli classics: knishes, lox, all-beef hot dogs, egg creams, black and white cookies, latkes and matzo ball soup.

The Nosh Pit—located at 4040 Park St. N, which was once home to Corned Beef Corner— has plenty of vegetarian options including a tofu pastrami sandwich and over a half-dozen salad options.

If you’re feeling extra hungry and competitive, the deli offers the Meshugganah Dagwood sandwich challenge which boasts “huge stack of deli meats, schmears, Jewish garnishes piled higher than the Skyway” for $49 if you fail at eating everything and a free t-shirt whether you finish it or not.

“We don’t have an exact date yet but are hoping to be open by March 1 as long as all the rubber stamps [and] licensing...come through in time,” co-owner Rachael Finn said in a message with Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. 

The Nosh Pit will be updating its progress on Facebook.
