Synopses & Reviews
It starts with a gift. When Ben Howe's wife, the daughter of Korean immigrants, decides to repay her parents' self-sacrifice by buying them a store, Howe, an editor at Paris Review, goes along. But when the business struggles, Howe finds himself living in his in-laws' basement, commuting to his office in George Plimpton's Upper East Side townhouse by day and heading to Brooklyn to slice cold cuts and peddle lottery tickets by night. My Korean Deli follows the store's tumultuous life and paints the portrait of an unlikely partnership between characters with shoots across society.
