If pickles and pastrami thrill you to the core, you probably already know about Brothers. But if you don't, settle in for a quick history lesson: This bright restaurant perching in the skyway is the latest incarnation of a Minnesota institution, run by the Burstein family for more than 80 years. It was born as a private catering operation for a Jewish club in the 1920s, turned into Mike's Café, and eventually expanded to 16 Brothers Delicatessens. The family sold the local chain, and the new owners drove it into the ground. Then a new generation of Bursteins started it up again, and once again the best pastrami, corned beef, pickles, and bagels in town issue forth in a salty, peppery, savory, stream.The deli also operates a seasonal sandwich cart on Nicollet Mall, offering a limited version of the skyway-level shop's menu.
