Our Story

8 Years of family tradition.

Meet the mother/daughter duo Vica and Milana (mamachka) who own and manage the day to day tasks at BFD. Immigrating from Kiev, Ukraine about 20 years ago, Vica graduated from Seton Hall University with a BS in International Relations and Diplomacy. That major landed her a job with the United Nations in Manhattan for a little while and then Lucent Technologies offered her a great job.

While attending high school and college, Vica had always worked in the food industry which she learned to love, and has owned this ‘local gem’ for the last 8 years. Our entire business has been based on word of mouth as well as our appearances on TV, written articles in newspapers, magazines as well as being rated a top food place on YELP. This is not just your regular deli - we call this place “Cheers” - most likely when you are here, you will know someone that walks into the door. So if you need some breakfast, lunch, catering for that special event or if you want to join us for our Famous 5 Course Russian/Ukrainian dinner, just stop in and say Hi!
