Mile End might have had humble beginnings—it began as a "rooftop experiment" by Noah Bernamoff, his wife Rae, and their friend Max Levine—but the end result has been nothing short of glorious. Mile End serves the kind of platonic ideal of Jewish deli food that you feel like ought to be available all over Brooklyn, but isn't. So what exactly is the secret? What is the one essential item that Bernamoff needs in his kitchen? As it turns out, Bernamoff says, it's "an iPod dock. I derive a lot of joy from listening to music, especially in a kitchen where everyone is focused and hard-working." Who knew that was all it took?
