The "Sturgeon King" definitely has the atmosphere of the old Jewish Deli of the 1940s' to 1960's period - the décor, furniture, displays, dishes, waiters. The taste is there too - sandwiches, soups, condiments (I had a glass of borscht that was 100% Yiddish Europe) . In fact the location has been used in films seeking that look, for example "You've Got Mail" with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. It is worth the visit. But be aware that the prices are New York 21st century tourist. So their flag ship sturgeon sandwich which fits on one bagel with no sides is $19.25, and they don't take credit cards. There are definitely better buys for authentic Jewish deli cuisine in New York City. My advice is to order the less expensive items on the menu so you can enjoy the experience and keep some money in your wallet.
