The motto of ZAFTIGS DELICATESSEN in Brookline is mildly alarming: "Let Us Be Your Jewish Mother," they say — a proposal that I would find unsettling under ordinary circumstances. But rather than driving you to psychoanalysis, Zaftigs merely serves you delicious, and brazenly non-kosher, deli food. The standbys are all here: blintzes and bagels, corned beef and knishes — but you can also indulge in a bacon cheeseburger. Just don't tell your Jewish mother.
