Some things are very good but there are many sandwiches of equal quality for half the price in town. It use to be a nice every-man deli worth going to. No longer, it is a caricature of a deli, a Disneyland artifice. But if you have a trust fund and don't give a rip about spending wisely....

While there was a little bit of a line (5:00 PM) the food was worth the wait. I really like and appreciated the staff, they explained food items and store items to anyone who asked. There was a gentleman in his 20's curly redish hair who was helping people when I came into the store, when we were leaving about an hour and a half later he was on the street, in his street clothes (clearly off the clock) still helping and recommending to people who were walking by!

Friends from Ann Arbor took us here today for lunch. We stood outside in line for 50 minutes; then inside for another 35 minutes, just to order; then waited for 40 minutes for them to prepare two take out pastrami and Reuben sandwiches. They were each $14.50.
By the time we got to eat our turkey Reuben, the bread was soggy from the slaw dressing on it.
I think you are paying for the marketing hype and for the chance to say you've eaten there. I have eaten just as good sandwiches for far less money and prepared in less than half the time.

The service was very friendly.

This restaurant was as good as the rave reviews I read and heard. I was not disappointed. I ordered a corned beef sandwich and a slice of 24 carrot cake. Both were tasty and actually impressive.
