Photos by Daniel Klepp Rocco’s Italian Deli is a New-York corner style deli with a modern twist which opened in June, specializing in sandwiches and salads.  Once walking in, you can tell that it is more focused on the modern aspect than the retro. A place like Zingermann’s feels much more like a new-age classic style deli than Rocco’s. ...
