About Gold & Meyer…
Gold & Meyer’s Gourmet Delicatessen and Bagelry was founded in 1959 in Plainview, New York. This business has a family tradition and community ties that have only grown stronger over the last 50 years. Every great business has been built off a rock solid foundation and that is exactly what has been established here at Gold & Meyer’s.
Unless you are one of the many loyal customers that have been shopping here for many years there is a story here that many people are unaware of. Originally the two owners of Gold & Meyer’s were competitors located in the same Morton Village shopping center. The owner of Bagel Alley was a man named Paul Meyerowitz and the owner of Dari Dell was Ron Goldstein. Both young aspiring businessmen at the time constantly found themselves in conflict because any time either one tried to expand or add things to their business the other followed suit. It was only a matter of time before the two would align their interests and create the store that many people all around the New York area would come to love Gold & Meyer’s Gourmet Delicatessen and Bagelry.
All bagels, bialys, muffins, turnovers, etc., are baked on premise. Our bagels are hand rolled and then water boiled the old fashion way. Our famous salads are made fresh in the kitchen everyday. If fish is what you wish, this is our specialty! We still travel to Brooklyn every week and hand pick all our smoked fishes, which we still hand slice in front of our customers. We still heat our corned beef, pastrami, and brisket in our steamer just like we did from our traditional beginnings. Over the last 50 years Gold & Meyer’s has been become quite the party goer. We have catered more parties then we could have ever dreamed. We specialize in catering for all occasions whether it be our ever popular smoked fish platters, salad platters, cold cut platters, wrap platters, and party heroes. Our success is contributed to our strong sense of tradition and quality. In a world where corners are constantly cut and the easy route is the one most traveled we have steered clear of that route and have kept our vision focused on the road less traveled in order to bring you the best quality and service that we possibly can. Its a formula that has worked and its something we NEVER plan on changing. We hope you enjoyed our story as much as we have telling it and we hope to see you soon!
