“Nice little NY Jewish Style Delt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Sarasota has few Jewish style delis, including a Florida chain called TooJays. A family from Brooklyn has opened a small place in Gulfgate that offers a pretty expansive menu of sandwiches and sides. Having just sampled their chopped liver I would say that Randabi's is off to a good start. When we get a chance, we will return and try the corned beef and pastrami, which, thank goodness, appear NOT to be Boar's Head! The owner Michael was very friendly and the place was pretty busy at lunch time. Definitely worth trying. The three stars are just a tentative rating as I have not had enough to offer a thorough judgement, but I am optimistic!

Update - Had really good corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, fries, and potato knish, as well as egg salad. Service was excellent. All that is needed is for the owner to hang some salamis and put up some NY nostalgia pictures.

We will be back.

“Worst excuse for a deli”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Had the corned beef and pastrami combo sandwich. The meat most certainly was not sliced fresh from a brisket. It tasted like grocery store meat filled with sulfates and preservatives. The bread was inferior. If this had been my first deli sandwich,I would never eat another. Drive to TooJays!
