A Who’s Who of Brooklyn was in attendance when the Zagat-rated Mill Basin Kosher Delicatessen opened its new private party room, the Peach Pit, last Thursday, with, what else? — a salami-cutting.

Borough President Markowitz, Assemblymembers Alan Maisel (D–Mill Basin) and Helene Weinstein (D–Midwood), and New York District Leader and Democratic State Committee Woman Roberta Sherman were among the luminaries who sampled sumptuous deli fare and took in the world-class art on the walls, including works by Erte, Chagall, Lichtenstein, Mucha, Ting, and Rizzi — both staples that have helped to make the neighborhood deli a sensory feast for the past 38 years.

Owner and art dealer Mark Schachner celebrated the expansion, which he named after the West Coast greasy spoon in the hit TV series, “Beverly Hills, 90210,” by donating two of his prized artworks by Frederick Prescott to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum: Murray the elephant, and Harry the horse, both two-ton, kinetic steel structures that have greeted art lovers outside his Ralph Avenue art gallery for decades.

“We’re very happy and excited that the neighborhood will be able to enjoy the new facility,” said the deli man, whose restaurant serves “New York’s best pastrami,” according to the Daily News, and is one of the top-five delis and kosher restaurants in the city, claims Zagat.

There’s also a new item on the menu to celebrate the Peach Pit’s arrival, added Schachner — crispy salmon!
