Having been to the Old New York recently and have to say that it does not meet the level of food as the Carnegie Deli on NY where I have had lunch many times over the years. I would recommend one of the downtown State...More

Looking for a good place on a busy crowded in town weekend. Although the location is a bit odd for a decent place we stopped. Everything was pretty good, like an upscale pub/tavern type menu. Fairly price comparatively for the area. Open clean atmosphere.

Everything I have ever sampled here is awesome. They do authentic German food, but don't miss the buffalo calamari!

Stopped with a friend who is married to a German. We had Hunter's schnitzel, which he tells me was as authentic as that he has had in Germany. Schnitzel was humongous, served with spaetzel and cabbage. I only ate about one third of my platter...More

Likening the era when pockets of immigrants settled in the boroughs of New York City and continued their old world traditions of camaraderie with wonderful food and warm hospitality. Here, at Olde New York, we hope to recreate that comfortable place for you to meet with your friends and family for traditional old world cuisine, fat deli sandwiches, savory salads and an array of refreshing beverages and splendid libations. So come on out to the old neighborhood and reacquaint yourself with the good times, good food and pleasantries of bygone years. Make Olde New York your neighborhood place.
