New in Tempe: Stan's Metro Deli

How could Mill Avenue have gone so long without a Jewish deli? It boggles the mind that thousands of college students (and the rest of us) have been deprived of good pastrami sandwiches for years, at least in that hood.


Well, tomorrow marks the soft opening of an old favorite from the last millennium. 

Stan's Metro Deli -- a traditional Jewish deli that had a Mill Ave presence in the '90s and was housed where Ra currently is -- joins the downtown Tempe dining mix at 414 S. Mill, formerly Pho Thang Long Vietnamese Restaurant.
