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.”

Bagel and lox are the best by far. Smoked salmon actually tastes like smoked salmon unlike in some other places. Deli paid tribute to Anthony Bourdain by setting a table with his favourite breakfast, bagel and scrambled eggs and lox. So touching to see an empty chair that Anthony will never sit on and eat his favourite breakfast. One of a kind, larger than life, loved around the Globe will be immortal and timeless just like his great telling stories and travels. Lots of us wanted to hang out with this cool, handsome culinary genius rock star and were happy to watch his travel and imagine we are there. Hopefully this deli will name bagel eggs and lox in his honour. ‘Anthony’s breakfast’ Anthony’s grandfather took his last journey from France to America to start his life there. Anthony took his last journey from America to France to end his life there. He went home from his original home. Heaven just became more delicious and cool because Anthony is there. This kitchen is seasoned with love❤️

$33 for two full and amazing breakfasts. What can I possibly say that has not been said about this place? It was the best Challah French Toast.......$12.50 ... sorry absolutely the best French toast I have ever had. My wife had Home Made Cheese Blintzes served with choice of Preserve or Sour Cream.......$14.00. Crazy delicious. Please go and treat yourself to a NYC must visit restaurant.

****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...
