One of a dying breed of classic Jewish delis, this Midtown institution is doing just fine, thanks both to its prime location down the street from Carnegie Hall and its gargantuan sandwiches. The restaurant, opened in 1937, smokes and cures all of its meat in its own facility in New Jersey. The menu is absurdly long. Luckily, you know what you want; sandwiches, giant ones that could easily feed two. There are the classics, of course, like pastrami and corned beef (you can combine the two in the "Woody Allen"), or you can get more adventurous with chopped liver or beef tongue. Photographs of celebrities line the walls that surround the 100-plus seats.

If I have time to stop, and can actually get a table (it’s always packed) I love a piece of their incredible cheesecake. They actually ship all over the US and I’ve had their cheesecake in a deli in Albany but, it’s better in the bustling atmosphere of NYC. You really feel like a New Yorker ready to conquer the world after one these sandwiches.
It's great for breakfast and late-night dining. Without a doubt, it is the greatest. I love going here. I’ve been going here about 30 years. The owner, Sandy, treats me so great and always welcomes me home to New York. I like their Matzo Ball soup. I like it very hot. I also like to get hot dogs with beans. For late-night, I like a nice sandwich – maybe an egg salad or something like that.
At least, at $22.22 the Tebow sandwich is a comparative bargain. Bring two friends -- one a vegetarian -- and subdivide it. (The vegetarian gets the top part.) Consider it a Judaic repudiation of Ch... More »
