Village Voice's Description

Only in New York: An ancient Jewish deli in Bed-Stuy is taken over by Muslim owners, who keep the traditions alive. David's was a long running deli specializing in permutations of brisket that closed for nearly a year not too long ago, and we thought the place was doomed. Now it's reopened, and is better than ever. There's a narrow lunch counter that few take advantage of, but a long line forms for carryout every day. Available in three sizes, the roast brisket with gravy is the sandwich to get, but the corned beef is also formidable. We're not as fond of the pastrami, but many swear by it. A tip of the hat to Sultan and Waleed--the proprietors--for keeping the standards of this wonderful place high.

    Food Network Star Justin Warner recommends that you challenge your appetite to Three the Hard Way, a towering triumph of brisket, corned beef and pastrami between two slices of rye. Via CityEats.com

  • Serious Eats on 03/19/13

    A Jewish deli institution now operated by Muslims. Great brisket and pastrami: tender, full bodied, and resoundingly rich.

  • Real Cheap Eats on 11/14/11

    "These sandwiches rival any in town. Order up the pastrami and no one will bat an eye if you have it on white bread with mayo. Even the “small” ($6) will ensure a full stomach."

  • The Corcoran Group on 04/11/11

    You come here for the awesome sandwiches, not the atmosphere. Mouthwatering Pastrami and Brisket Beef. If you have room…have a dessert.
