Take a matzoh brei breather at this post-ironic Jewish deli where they brine their own pastrami and the walls are papered with fading Yiddish newsprint.
Weekday lunch hour isn't so bad! No lines... And the Reuben! Wow, delish!
Matzo ball soup
it’s time to break out of the pastrami-on-rye rut and try the Reuben at Wise Sons Deli. Do the corned beef (or pastrami, if you must), melty swiss cheese, kraut, and Russian dressing on rye.
The best thing about this place is that the lines at Arizmendi's are now much shorter
One of the best delicatessens I've visited to date. I highly suggest the Challah French Toast, which was out of this world. Fresh seasonal fruit is a great addition, too. Note: seating is limited.
The crust on the rye blows my mind.
Great Montreal-style bagels from Beauty's on Saturdays.
Housemade Hot dog on challah bun special today and Banana Fosteritz French Toast w/ graham cracker streusel
The waitresses could be nicer...
Try the Smoked Sturgeon Croquette - Tasty comfort food--with egg inside? #modern #jewish #deli (via @Foodspotting)
Chocolate babka is to die for
Maybe I have to be Jewish to enjoy the food? I was not impressed. In fact, I was quite disappointed with the acclaimed Reuben.
Chocolate babka. 'Nuff said.
Holy crap, wish I'd found this place before the last day of my vacation; incredible food and five star service. Do not walk past this place.
The pastrami is tender, fatty, and slightly oversmoked, but delicious nonetheless. Skip the uninspired patty melt and go for the reuben instead.
Sandwiches are served after 11am, but do try the Ruben w/ Corned Beef (pictured below), it's ah-mahzing!
The Reuben is pretty out of this world good. The pastrami was thickly sliced and juicy. The rye bread, buttered and toasted to perfection. Downside? High cost. :(
L.E.O. scramble with bialy is fantastic, but arrive early to avoid weekend crowds.
Chicken soup for an alcoholic's soul: the matzoh ball soup, paired with challah toast and a boylan's ginger ale. Slurp down and try to ignore the slabs of pastrami the size of your hand
Reuben + potato salad!! Will skip the pastrami fries next time.
The acid test of any deli is the chopped liver. Theirs is A+.
Very disappointing; extremely slow food delivery, expensive, and overhyped.
Brutally slow at delivering food, but it's tasty once it does arrive.
If you're from Montreal you'll find the pastrami Ruben overpriced and mushy. Strip away the warm slaw, onions and sauce and have it bear. At least then you can taste the meat.
Matzo ball soup is on 7x7's Big Eat 2013.
The turnips on the Pickle Plate are a revelation.
Pastrami. Rye. challah. Matzo brei, matzo ball soup. Very mission hip & a comfy, authentic nod to the east coast deli many of us grew up on. Big portions, be warned!
Solid coffee. Nothing uptight and fancy. Good old Mr. Espresso!
The ground pastrami burger!
Schnitzel Sandwich. Do it.

They tend to run out of pastrami. Get here early!
Get the crispy pastrami on anything!!
Try the Babka Cereal (via @Foodspotting)
The challah French toast is delicious, and really too big. Share it with a friend.
The veggie hash is amazing!! Like even meat eaters think it's ANAZING!
