Delicious sandwiches. Portions are HUGE, even the "junior" size lunch sandwich offerings--I would definitely share a sandwich in the future.

Probably in our opinion, it is one of the best quality deli restaurants in New York City. If you like pastrami, this is a place to go. Service can not be better.

Stumbled upon this place for breakfast. Great pancakes and french toast. Lovely crispy bacon. Waitress was kind enough to seek out some fruit loops for our son. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

Thank God there are a few real old school Deli's still around. When you sit down, they bring out a bucket of pickles & coleslaw. Good full & half sours, good quality, not great though. Free refills too. What I also liked is the quiet...More
