This iconic kosher deli is still stuffing sandwiches and ladling matzo ball soup (reputed for its healing powers) just as it has for over 50 years. It's like something out of central casting with its neon sign in the front window, mirrors on the walls, slowly roasting hot dogs, and display counter showing off the knishes and latkes. Soulful classics include stuffed veal breast and tongue sandwiches with tangy pickles, but it's positively blasphemous to skip the pastrami sandwich, with layer-upon-layer of warm pastrami shavings piled on soft rye. Some order to go, but a hearty Reuben stacked with mounds of hot corned beef, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing is more enjoyable in a comfortable booth. Slake your thirst with a can of Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray soda.
