    The very Eastern European menu includes saline chicken liver, garlicky karnatzlach sausage and enormous beef tenderloins, all of which are hearty enough to slow down the hora.

    Bring earplugs if you're sensitive to loud bar mitzvah music. Put the schmaltz on everything.

    You go here for the atmosphere more then the food. An unbelievable experience. Good thing the food is also good - the steak, chicken liver and sweat breads are great choices

    Chopped liver is to die for. Stuffed cabbage really good. Self serve egg cream is delish, but don't order it until after the meal. You will stand out. Totally fun atmosphere. Just do it.

    Pricey but worth going once for the atmosphere ("it's like going to a Jewish wedding") and live music. Food is subpar (they use cheap cuts of steak). Chopped liver is their specialty

    If you are finding out about this place via foursquare, you aren't the target audience. The ambience of a church basement bingo hall with park avenue prices.

    $55 Prix Fixe buys you all the potatoes (+meat) you can eat. $300 buys you a bottle of Vodka in ice. So, just bring like $101 and you'll be fine. Also, try the Hora. It's fun.
