Revisited for a pastrami and, tongue sandwich. Too much to put in one's mouth but with some surgical precision (and a knife and fork), brought it to a manageable size with lots left on the plate to eat. Yum! Excellent pastrami. Service was good. 4th generation ownership and going strong.

Visited with a group of 4 people for breakfast and had some very good and very filling typical diner fare. Corned beef hash was fantastic but large and so was the Pastrami sandwich. Great service and lovely staff. enjoyed so much we went back 2 more times.Be warned after eating breakfast here you won't eat the rest of the day.

The hype for this restaurant on various food sites is a bit overstated. The food is delicious and tasty. There quality of the ingredients is very good. But given the hype on the place, I really expected very large sandwiches and large optioned entrees, but not always true. Don't get me wrong the menu is extensive and choices/selections are varied,... More

Me & my husband both got corn beef & pastrami sandwich's for lunch. They were huge! So big we couldn't manage it all! We found the meat to be really fatty though, a little too fatty. Also, we found that the price did not match the quality.

Great meal. I had the potato pancakes with apple sauce. Great and huge serving. Definitely consider sharing a meal. Matzo ball soup was unbelievable. Better if not as good as the big names. Husband and son had the Ruben and were not disappointed. Service was very average.

You can't fault this place, everything is cooked perfectly, the menu is massive,and the quality of the ingredients is high. The portions are stupidly big, but hey this New York.

I moved to New York from Texas back in the days (1980) when there were still good Jewish delicatessens all over New York City. You could go down to the lower east side and eat at Katz's when you wanted to eat meat and Ratner's when you wanted to have dairy. You could buy mouthwatering knishes (kasha, potato, cabbage, etc.),... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
