Jewish Delis in NYC?

Recommended Posts

I had dinner there a few weeks ago, the menu was really paired down, and we were the only people there from seven to eight.


it's dead all over, part summer, part something else perhaps. we were walking around manhattan last night, lots of places empty.

Russ & Daughters explicitly says it's not a deli on the website.  I just like having the same discussion every few years.

i think Ben's Best in Rego Park is better than Ben's Kosher. Ben's Best also serves nice portions

I don't think Eisenberg's is a deli. To me, it's a coffee shop.   Harry & Ida's, perhaps? Though there is no seating.

Please add Loeser's to the list. 231st Street, at the edge of Riverdale, or maybe that side of the street is Kingsbridge. Anyway, until Mr Loeser dies, it will go on.


And yes, no Eisenberg's. What were you (or the compiler of the list) thinking??

Updated list:




Ben Ash

2nd Avenue


Ben's (various locations)


Mill Basin



Mile End

Jay & Lloyd's


Ben's Best


Fine & Schapiro


Pastrami Queen




(Barney Greengrass)

We're keeping Mile End, yes? Barney Greengrass? Anyway, the main achievement is that we've identified more than twenty Jewish delis still in existence: I didn't count the number of branches of Ben's.
