Iz Cohen’s Delicatessen and Restaurant was located at 2201-2203 Murray Ave. It opened in 1962, when Iz Cohen left Cohen’s Poultry Market at 2128 Murray Ave. to assume ownership of Polonsky’s Delicatessen. It was known as Iz Cohen of Polonsky’s until 1969, when the building was damaged in a fire. After reopening and expanding, the name of the restaurant was shortened to Iz Cohen’s Delicatessen and eventually became affiliated with the Robert Shugerman and Charles “Chuck” Criswell. Throughout the early 1970s, Iz Cohen’s Delicatessen ran an annual one-day promotion where the entire daily receipts from the restaurant were donated to the Israel Emergency Fund at the United Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh. Iz Cohen’s Delicatessen became Rhoda’s Delicatessen in 1977, and Cohen became manager at Aunt Fanny’s Nosheria.
