Loveski is a “jew-ish” deli born out of Northern California by Christopher and Martina Kostow. Featuring handmade sourdough bagels, house-made pickles and other ferments, vegetables from our farm, and the best cured and smoked meats. With elements of Martina’s Thai upbringing, and the sensibilities of our time and place, the result is at once irreverent, artisanal, personal, while remaining grounded in the dearly held traditions of appetizing stores and delicatessens.
Chef Kostow’s family name pre-Ellis Island was Koslovski. With this concept, Christopher and Martina are bringing back this lost part of the name and, with it, some of the culinary traditions associated with the Jewish diaspora.
