    One of my favorites restaurants in NYC. The pastrami sandwich is so good and delicious! You should try the matza ball soup and half of the sandwich, a great combination!

    They give coleslaw and pickles as table food and if you have a baby, you get applesauce and Cheerios. Will definitely come back when we visit next time. And the food is amazing and plentiful.

    No matter what you crave this kosher deli has it. Biggest sandwich to the more manageable size. The double double special gives you a soup and half sandwich that will fill up most! Soo sooo good.

    Delicious food, quick, pleasant, clean, and oh, did I mention delicious? Matzah balls are amazing, not to mention the stuffed cabbage and the veal/garlic sandwich! Worth a trip!

    Best hot pastrami sandwich on rye $13- reasonable size for one person, not the commonly oversized all-American portion! Speedy takeout counter.

    Matzoh ball soup - delicious. Brisket is perfectly fatty (in a good way). Stuffed cabbage is outstanding, albeit HUGE.
