Lots of very good food, big menu, great kosher meats, fine desserts. The restaurant is spacious, with outdoor seating in a mini park in front. Service is very good, though it is often crowded.

Casual New York style deli with all the fare you'd expect from a New York deli. Hot Pastrami, Hot Corned Beef, Potato Latkes, Bagels & Lox, Smoked Whitefish, Dr.Browns Black Cherry soda and their own in-house fruit flavored sparkling water/sodas. Can't be beat !

a lunch place with character. Clearly a Jewish diner, with Pastrami and Knish and other specialties on the menu, but not only those! As soon as you sit down, you get a dish of pickled cucumbers (great!); the salads are excellent, and for once the...More
