Jack Rosen passed away on Sunday. Rosen was a long-time fixture at Full Belly Deli working along with his son David who is the restaurant’s owner. Today’s Press Herald includes a Passages article on Rosen and an obituary.
His son said it was his father’s dream to open a deli. He said customers expected to see him there – even those who he insulted for ordering a sandwich wrong.
“It’s inappropriate to order corned beef or pastrami on white bead,” his son said. “He wouldn’t let them do it. He told them to order a different bread and they listened.”
