I am in the Boston area quite often visiting my daughter and we always end the visit with a brunch at Zaftigs. I have only ever been here for brunch, and I highly recommend checking it out. There is always a line outside the door,...More

This is one of my favorite eateries whenever I am in Boston. The menu is extensive and consistently delicious. You can’t go wrong on anything you choose. For the typically “Jewish” palate, this restaurant is must. For others, just try any of the great menu...More

Six of us were here in the Brookline area for four days and went here for lunch. Many years ago the above named deli was a destination for eating (not dining). I had hope that this deli would be similar. It really wasn't. I had...More

good chicken soup, but make sure you don't get a ton of carrots... lots of variety...prices a bit high..but overall quality is very good. Omelets are delicious, haven't had pastrami-so can't say. Busy on sunday mornings; always crowds and long waits.
