Old-style Jewish deli fare & smoked fish
Breakfast · West 80s · $$
The Zagat Review
An “essential” UWS “institution” , this circa-1908 “temple to smoked fish” “still reigns” with its “fabulous fresh bagels” , “silky” nova and other “quintessential” Jewish deli fare; on weekends service turns more “brusque” and the “cramped” space gets “chaotic” , but “so what?” – it's “part of the charm.”

****if you are a tourist, please remember to check the prices with the ones in your check or simply avoid this place **** Good food but terrible service. The waiter gave us a check with random numbers. We had to decipher it to realize it was $15 more than what we had! Very overrated place! Don't waste your time here. There are far better places in the neighborhood...

Good food. Small portions. High prices for what you get. Hard to recommend when u can get a real triple decker that will feed 3 peeps at other joints for the same price.

The service was speedy and the fresh squeezed orange juice was great. That is where the positives ended. We ordered 2 pastrami sandwiches, an iced tea and hot coffee. The small portion of pastrami was dry and rubbery - like a sling shot. Actually, one bite did ricochet from my mouth to the sandwich sending a piece flying onto the table top. I know pastrami can be messy to eat, but this was ridiculous. The accompanying pickle was dinky and tasted like it came from a jar. Finally, the coffee literally looked like mud - not a clear liquid but cloudy & murky. We came here because our beloved Carnegie Deli is gone and thought since this place has been around over 100 years their pastrami had to be good. However, we left very disappointed and certain NOT to return.
