How a Jewish deli run by Muslims became the symbol of a changing neighborhood
These days, in the predominantly African-American neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant - or Bed-Stuy - in Brooklyn, you'll find David's Brisket House, a Jewish deli that has been owned by the same Muslim family for 50 years.
The deli was originally kosher, owned by a Jewish family, but when its former owners put it on the market in the 1960s, it was bought by two business partners: one, a Yemenite Muslim, and the other a Yemenite Jew.
The partners decided that instead of changing the menu, they would keep customers coming back for their beloved meats.
Today, even as Bed-Stuy faces vast socioeconomic change and gentrification, David's Brisket House has survived as a neighborhood staple and a truly unique blend of cultures. The deli has stayed in the family and is now run by Riyadh Gazali, the nephew of one of the partners.
