Thankfully, a few authentic Jewish delicatessens still survive in New York, and this is one of them. It is far enough away from Times Square not to be mobbed. The menu is everything one would hope for, and our waitress was friendly enough (this is New York) and very efficient. Yes, it's not cheap, but they deliver excellent food in... More
