The concept of Randabi’s Jewish Deli is from the mind of founder and co-owner Michael Lauber. The Restaurant name itself comes from a combination of his two daughters’ names, Miranda and Abi. Mike grew up in the deli business in Brooklyn NY and to this day it’s in his blood.  Some say he doesn’t bleed red, he bleeds chicken soup. His mother Esther’s old world recipe is continually reproduced almost daily in small fresh batches. The same goes for our chopped liver, which we tout as the finest in all of Florida. When you can actually find chopped liver it’s usually brought in commercially via buckets. Ours again, like the chicken soup, is made in small batches fresh. Because of our secret ingredients no one has been able to reproduce its flavor. 

Co-owner and Chef, Jerry Thomas partnered with Michael to help add another dimension to the deli as he brings his culinary palette and skills, honed in many fine dining and country club kitchens as well as his knowledge and experience as a baker and decorator.  Chef Jerry has been a specialty cake decorator for many years and personally bakes all of the desserts for the deli as well as for catering and special requests.

Be it a freshly made New York style cheese cake or our house specialty the Middle Eastern Malawach sandwich, we at Randabi’s believe we all deserve deli food that’s fresh, tasty, authentic and different.
