Ran into this Deli close to Time Square. Needed coffee on a cold morning. I went with a friend and was able to share a breakfast sandwich, breakfast potatoes and hot coffee. Service was okay, place was clean

We wanted really good deli sandwiches with a decent amount of meat - that's exactly what we got! Really good, but pricey.

I returned to New York to see this place was still open. Haha must be a joke. How this place hadn't closed down. Poor everything, food, staff, cleanliness

Ordered the pancakes. They were cardboard like, but steaming hot. Which would help, because the butter was cryogenically frozen and needed to be thawed. Had to ask for extra syrup to make the pancakes pliable enough to cut with the steak knife I asked for ..... yeah this place was bad. Did I mention the ceiling paint was peeling and... More

Food was very good, cheesecake was incredible! Prices were pretty much the standard for the area. Service was attentive. Bathroom while down a very cold hallway, was decent. Definitely a good place to stop in for a bite to eat!

$12,- for a mediocre cheese cake, bad service, disgusting restrooms. Avoid at all cost!! Not worth the money.

Good deli food and good service in the heart of Manhattan. They servings are huge, almost too much food for one person. Note, however, the food is also on the pricy side. Lunch for two including tip was $60.00.

I wanted to eat something but not fast food. The sandwich with pastrami was good and the French soup not bad. But all the restaurant must be change. It's very old. No wifi. Bad restrooms. And this restaurant is at the 7th Ave & 55th street.

On our way to our hotel in the Times Square from the airport, our driver stated his favorite deli in the Times Square area was Benash Deli. We went there prior to going to a show. I had the pastrami sandwich, It was great and was piled high with meat. Even though I think $20.00 is high for a sandwich,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
