Must visit if you are in NYC for the actual experience and delicious deli food. Try the banana cream pie, sky high pastrami, and the roast beef. Honestly everything here is delicious.

Yum. Quick service, generous portions and great food. French toast was light and fluffy, plenty of maple syrup! The man had corned beef hash. It was huge and he had no complaints! Definitely recommend this place and wish we had room for cheesecake!
