Celebrate New Book of Watchung Deli Stories and Recipes - Sunday
Watchung Deli Owners Robert and Jeanne Johannsen

Montclair, NJ – Montclair’s legendary Watchung Deli, opened in 1926 and sadly closed in 2020, but the stories and recipes live on in a new book by Robert and Jeanne Johannsen.

The sustainable delicatessen has had many owners in its nearly 100-year history, but from 1999 to 2015 it was owned by two couples: the Johannsens along with Gary and Maureen Kiffer.

Meet Robert and Jeanne Johannsen this Sunday, June 5 at 2 p.m. at Watchung Booksellers and receive your copy of their keepsake book with stories and recipes! Bring family, friends and anyone in Montclair who grew up eating their famous sandwiches, including the Angry Dwarf.
