I have never felt so compelled to write a review before but on this occasion I must. We ate in Benash this evening and I can honestly say it has been a long time since I have eaten worse meal. Oven chips, burnt cheese, frozen...More

I was so looking forward to some good Jewish deli food. Unfortunately they were out of potato pancakes - how does that happen? So, I ordered the potato knish instead. The inside tasted good but the outside was really hard and greasy. It actually made...More

I prefer not to submit negative reviews, but occasionally they beg to be written. Our server could not have been less interested in serving. The beer was lukewarm. The brisket was dry. We were told they had no coleslaw because mayonnaise goes bad in warm...More

There are probably better delis in NYC but it was convenient and offered exactly what we expected from a deli in NYC--triple decker pastrami and brisket sandwich, matzo ball soup, barley and mushroom soup, and cheesecake.
