I've been eating here for years. The food is always good and the atmosphere a nice throwback. I had the crab omelet today for breakfast and it was delicious.

This is where all the movers and shakers of the Maryland statehouse like to come for lunch, which is a classic New York-style deli. Excellent sandwiches, but it can be a challenge getting in during peak hours.
