    Hearty, meaty sandwiches and Montreal-style deli food (house-smoked meats, poutine, brisket) served deluxe. Make sure to get a pickle on the side and wash it all down with a good glass of wine. Read more

    Sure, get the sandwiches and smoked meat, everyone knows that, but just don't forget the poutine! And if you're lucky, maybe it's Poutine Week 😉 God bless, Poutine Week. Be prepared for a wait!

    Have the smoked brisket (called smoked meat here) served traditionally on rye bread with a schmear of mustard, or chopped up & smothered on fries with cheese curds & gravy in the smoked-meat poutine. Read more

    Canadians are really onto something with their gravy-and-cheese-covered poutine. We love the version at Brooklyn’s Mile End, which also incorporates the deli's famed pastrami-like smoked meat. Read more

    Even though it's small and sometimes difficult to get a seat, the reward is totally worth it! Poutine week was a pretty amazing feat! Weekday lunch is a safer bet for seating than weekend.

    Wow! Best smoked meat (smoked brisket) sandwich I've ever had! Perfect smokiness with the kick of mustard. Brisket was tender and moist! Only wish was maybe toast the bread. 5/5

    They serve excellent smoked meat sandwiches by day, and innovative takes on Jewish classics at night. Great neighborhood spot; also worth the schlep across the river. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Out of chicken soup at 2 pm on Sunday is not a good thing. Very disappointing on a cold day. Smoked meat sandwich (Canadian version of pastrami) very good. Did I say they ran out of matzoh ball soup?

    Smoked-meat sandwich: All-natural beef. A healthy dose of garlic. Cured in 18 freshly ground spices for 11 days, smoked for 8 hours, steamed for 4 more and then hand-sliced. It's what you're ordering. Read more

    This place is so authentically amazin. Ever felt the guilt of the famously un-Kosher combination of chicken salad and bacon? Here gribenes act in lieu of the pork and don't disappoint. So damn good..

    I got a Reuben and shared a tasty chopped liver spread with my bf. The Reuben was corn beef and delicious, with a little bit of sweetness to it. Was craving more cheese cuz I like cheese!

    We know they do a bang-up job at all the Canadian-style favorites here, but have you tried the turkey sandwich? Brined, smoked, steamed, and sliced to order: Featured in Cheap Eats 2011! Read more

    Try one of the newest additions to Mile End’s menu, the breakfast burger, involves a juicy veal and turkey sausage patty, cheddar and apple-maple butter sandwiched by a house-made English muffin. Read more

    Poutine, smoked meat and pressed salami sandwich were all amazing. The wait wasn't that bad at all and it was worth it to sit and enjoy the poutine in house. Can't wait to go back and try more!

    “cure, smoke, steam, and hand-slice their own pastrami. Standout dishes are the smoked meat, the Ruth Wilensky salami sandwich, and the pastrami burger.” – GS:

    The extensively cooked brisket has been evolving since the place opened, and now it"s nearly perfect when deposited on rye bread with an assertive mustard. Read more

    The smoked meat is delicious - glorious hand cut brisket that rivals Katz's. Fries & matzoh ball soup were both excellent. Place is tiny so go off-hours or get it to go & find a spot in the 'hood

    The salad is great b/c it's not drowning in mayonnaise (a fate that often befalls whitefish salad). The bagels are "Montreal-style" which means slightly smaller (I don't mind) and less salty (I mind).

    The smoked meat is amazing. But everything here seems $1 or $2 too expensive. If you feel likewise, walk up Hoyt to Fast & Fresh Deli for a great, cheap Mexican torta. Or stay here and indulge!

    A must do for the lush Montreal bagels. If you want to buy some to take home don't forget to order online by Friday for Saturday delivery. Or order direct from St Viateur en Montreal.

    The Smoked Meat burger is topped with a fried egg, pickles, red onions, mustard-mayo, and American cheese on an onion roll. It's a giant mess, but the fallen-apart mess is still fun to eat. Read more

    Try everything at some point. consistency across the board. Craving a smoked meat hash now! Staff rocks - get here if you haven't yet.. they're also open late for dinner if you're in the hood.

    Their irreproachable, house-made smoked meat—the joint’s foundational item—gives a smoldering, peppery kick to a loosely packed patty of mineral-rich brisket in their Smoked-meat Burger. Read more

    Hit up Tuesday night for the smoked meat burger and poutine special. Hit up any other night to be equally happy and fulfilled. Brisket and corned beef are a knockout.

    Look out Katz’s Deli, Mile End is making a name for itself in Brooklyn. Canadian chef-owner Noah Bernamoff’s place was instantly mobbed on account of the house made brisket served on rye.

    The bagels here aren't merely Montreal style: They're baked in Montreal and trucked over the border each morning. Popular brunch items include the brisket hash and the house-cured lox. Read more

    Get The Beauty: house-cured lox is silky & plush, w/ capers scattered across surface. Paper-thin shavings of purple onion on cream cheese provide a nice counterpoint to the more robust ingredients.

    Smoked Meat Poutine is always a must buy do have breakfast sandwich for a lighter meal. Never get a pic early on the Poutine...

    You must try the smoked meat sandwich, the poutine and the sour pickles. They are closed daily from 4.30-5.30. Not much in the way of seating, so be prepared to wait.

    Bring a friend and go go splitty-splitty on a Beauty (bagel +lox) & A Breakfast Sandwich (Canadian bacon + egg + cheddar on rye) Pro tip: the latter doesn't travel well.

    Try the legendary smoked meat sandwich or the poutine with the smoked meat on top, it’s to DIE for! Not outrageously large portions. Brought to you by THE EXPENDABLES opening August 13!

    A small place that serves incredible food. And all the reviews are all true. We had the poutine. Delish. Smoked meat hash, very good. But the chopped liver - BEST.

    My third trip here and the food is consistently good. The smoked meat sandwich is amazing. Don't miss out on Sunday Chinese Dinner or Wednesday Burger night.

    Had lunch here on a Tuesday afternoon - matzo ball soup & chicken liver with a nice beer. There was no wait for a table and our server was super nice.

    the beauty (smoked salmon on a montreal bagel) is excellent. If you're feeling super indulgent, get the classic poutine. it's a punch in the stomach - in a good way!
  • Geoffroy B.
    The poutine really is legendary. Thick, just right fries, delicious gravy, and big cheese curds if that's your thing. Have it with a Gose sour beer.

    The lineup of dishes, includes mains like brisket or turkey, starters such as squash latkes or matzo ball soup, and on the side: challah stuffing.

    Chopped liver is to die for 💀. Matzo ball soup is on point and the smoked meat burger is bangin. Seeee pic.

    As someone who's lived in Montreal the past 5 years this was so disappointing. Everything - from the cheese curds to the smoked meat to the pickles - was extremely salty.

    They have the gall to charge five cents more than Katz's for their much smaller and not nearly as delicious pastrami sandwich. And no pickles included?

    The Smoked meat sandwich is as pure of a love letter to Deli food as I've ever had. What they are able to do to beef is just breathtaking.

    Did you order the smoked meat poutine? No?!?!! Flag down the waiter and add it to your order, or live with regret for the rest of your life.

    Small place with limited seats, got the Ruth, was delish and not too big. And the pickle! Yum

    These dudes from Montreal bring it with the smoked meat sandwich, poutine, and smoked burger. The fried corn and green beans looked good too.
