Neighbourhood: Marylebone
Description: Here we have a London version of an authentic New York Deli. It's been family owned and run, at this very site, since 1900. Spick & span, it offers a welcoming range of classic deli lines plus hot soup & cooked dish-of-the-day. Terrific choice of sandwich fillings on a choice of breads. A little oasis of old world charm and hospitality in a 21st Century metropolis.

Just a stroll from Selfridges and even closer to the wonderful Marylebone High Street lies Paul Rothe & Son ... the take out/eat in deli. that's been family owned & run since 1900. You could well liken it to London's version of a classic, well-established, New York deli.
More than 25 yrs. have passed since I was last there and little, if anything, had changed. My wife and I chose it (12 Apr.) despite the plethora of other more 21st Century eateries in that part of the capital.
It was that sort of time of day when you are too late for lunch yet too early for supper. Despite an already long day's trading (and apparently one of the busiest for them in a long while) there was not the slightest hint of 'please can you be quick so that we can pack up and all go home'. Not a bit of it. An ernormous range of sandwich fillings beckoned from the refrigerated glass display counter and the choice made remarkably easy by virtue of the clearly defined, hand-rendered, long list running along the wall at the back. We were offered a choice of breads by the white coated, great grandson, of the originator and, once decided, he went to work, piling in the chosen fillings. With the sandwiches, we had perfectly acceptable tea & coffee. Seating arrangement was so in-keeping with the establishment in that they were of the 'pull down and sit quickly before they pop back again' type. As we sat and munched, we watched a member of staff tackle a giant pumpkin which was a worthy contender for 'best in show' at any annual county event. It was to be the essential ingredient of the next day's soup. We should've asked, if only out of interest, what the hot plat du jour would be. The clientele was eclectic and it was not difficult to ID the regulars. Along the whole of the r.h. wall, on entering, is an amazing, mixed display of jams, conserves and chutneys which we took advantage of and continue thoroughly to enjoy at home. "Paul Rothe & Son, I'm sure you'll still be at 35 Marlebone Lane in another 112 years time ... you jolly well deserve to be".

This gem has been owned by the same family for more than 100 years. Soup, salads and sandwiches are the main offerings, together with a selction of hot drinks. There is alose a very wide range of Tiptree jams available, and similar products from othe manufacturers. The staff are friendly and helpful. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. Sandwiches are made to order in front of you, for take-away or to eat in. I think it's great!
