A really good kosher deli. The food is outstanding. The owners are extremely helpful and go out of their way to please you. They are usually busy, which says something.

This place has a huge menu full of old-time kosher deli sandwiches and all sorts of combinations. They also have a great selection of American and Chinese cuisine. They're open till late at night. Great place!

Used to go here when it was called "Amici36". Then great, now fresh and nice but not as rough and tough as before. I still recommend it though! Fresh tasty food and great coffee! Very effective staff! Value for money.

We enjoyed everything about this place -- food, people, ambiance.. It seemed from the moment we walked in that this was where the locals go. We were looking for a good Jewish Deli and it did not disappoint... We will drive from the city next time we are in NYC to eat here again...

Essen is Shomer Shabbat and Glatt Kosher. My experience with such restaurants in NY is that their food is mediocre, at best. The higher-end kosher restaurants are superb, but the neighborhood places aren't. At one point, there were called "Essex on Coney" and the food back then was good. I haven't been back since they closed, changed their name and... More

This is the best deli around, although they were out of tongue when i was there. Plenty of choice, great service, and wonderful food.

If you like good chicken poppers or a good deli sandwich, this is the place to go! Their dishes are truly excellent.

As usual, they hit the mark EVERY TIME. always full, but justified. Great service, portions, etc. a little on the expensive side though... But worth it
