Deli, short for the German word delicatessen, is usually a store that sells cold cuts, cheeses, salads, and a selection of unusual or foreign prepared foods. Deli meats refer to typically served cold and sliced thin meats. Now, the word deli has different connotations, depending on the geographic area. In the U.S., a deli is often a combined restaurant and grocery store. Customers who are looking for a broader and fresher menu often go to delis where the menus can vary according to regional ethnic diversity.
