Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

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. 

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
