In Richmond for a wedding and went looking to see if the NY Deli still existed. Was thrilled to find them but disappointed that it had been remodeled 10 years prior and had lost that typical deli atmosphere with the cases of deli meats, cheese and relishes. I suppose they had to adapt to the changing times and vibe of... More

Visiting this restaurant is just like being in a New York City diner. The atmosphere is typical, and the sandwiches are outstanding. Everything is fresh and tasty, and service is good. A great spot for lunch - never a disappointment!

I've followed ny deli on facebook for a while before I finally drove the 60 miles to try them. Their decor is like a building you'd find in ny which I liked. Wooden bar, old wooden bar stools even the metallic looking ceiling. I sat and had a couple of bell's island drafts and they were cold and yummy. I... More

My family has eaten the sailor sandwich here for decades. We still enjoyed going back for a sandwich when we are in town. I think perhaps the amount of meat on the sandwich has decreased over time. However, it's still a very good sandwich.

Stopped in for a quick lunch because it was too hot and I did not feel like eating greasy expensive food in the street. With this said, I wound up ordering a portabello mushroom sandwich and fried onion rings. I was greeted warmly and seated immediately. My request for a window set was granted. I was able to still watch... More

We were in town for the week and ended up stopping in here for food and drinks multiple times. The food was always good and the drinks were well mixed. They have a wonderful beer selection. When we didn't want beer anymore the bartender was helpful with mixed drink selections. She even made us based on our mood for the... More

This is a basic sandwich joint attempting to market itself as a NYC deli. As a New Yorker, I can assure you that it isn't even close to being a NYC deli, although it is possible to find a reasonable assortment of sandwiches of average quality, at best.

They have my favorite trivia in Richmond every Tuesday with $3 rail whiskey and $.65 wings (get the sesame ginger). Unfortunately, the menu is kind of hit or "meh." The sailor and rueben are great, but the fried chicken salad and soho turkey are pretty mediocre. I'm not sure why it's so damn hot in there in the evenings in... More

I enjoyed the setting (especially around the bar) and cozy atmosphere. The menu featured a fairly standard (though well made!) selection of bar food. The beer selection was on par with a variety of both standard domestics and craft fare. Overall this made me think of a campus bar in a campus town somewhere. Just the tiniest bit of a... More
