What would be your first impression of a restaurant attached to a car wash? This one is so good that you wouldn't think to stop there unless you live in the area or a local told you about it.
50 years ago Essex County, NJ, and Newark in particular, was loaded with great Jewish-style delis. Most of them are now gone. Some newcomers try to re-create the deli experience. This one, begun in Newark in the 1950s, is the real thing, and has followed its clientele westward to its present location.
That the corned beef and pastrami sandwiches are outstanding goes without saying. Get a knish for a side dish. Try one of the Jewish-style dinner platters - just like Bubbie used to make. On our most recent trip we had a lox and bagel platter for Sunday brunch. For a not-to-be-duplicated-anywhere treat, find out what is a "Sloppy Joe." (No, in northern New Jersey its NOT messy hamburger meat and tomato sauce in a bun.) And top it all off with a slice of cheesecake (if you've got any room left).
