See Inside Chef Jose Salazar and Deeper Roots' Bodega-Inspired Daylily Deli

Columbia Tusculum's Daylily Deli — chef Jose Salazar and Deeper Roots Coffee's New York-style bodega — has officially opened. The menu features everything from the New York staple egg on a roll with American cheese, a chopped cheese sandwich (with ground beef, cheese, banana peppers, sauteed onion, lettuce, tomato and special sauce on a hoagie) and even an egg cream coffee soda.

There are two wine taps and two beer taps, with a selection of alcohol for carry-out. And Deeper Roots will also be offering its full coffee menu — but not in the infamous blue-and-white Greek coffee cup. That New York favorite has been swapped out for a compostable version.

Daylily Deli is located at 3751 Eastern Ave., Columbia Tusculum. For more info, visit daylilydeli.com.
