    Opened in 1908, less well-known but older than the Lower East Side Russ & Daughters, the staples of Jewish-American cuisine (lox, bagels, pumpernickel, blintzes, matzo ball soup) are at least as good or better here. Come during the week, because it’s packed on the weekend & bring cash because they don’t accept credit cards.

    An old world NYC classic with excellent breakfast and lunch options. The smoked fish and eggs are worth trying. The place is small and the wait can be long but well worth the special trip. Put it on your list if you like old world NYC delis. They also have many items available for takeout.

    The prices were high, but I assumed that was due to great quality. It was not. The person who made my sandwich kept reminding me how much everything cost and asking if I still wanted my order, which was a little weird bc he didn't assume other customers couldn't afford to eat there. Also, when I asked if I could sit in the dining area, I was told no, even though the couple next to me was invited to. They told me that I could sit in the front room where the cashier was, but the place was cluttered with boxes and receipts and generally looked dingy. My mistake for going there.

    Never been a big salmon fan. That is until I had the smoked salmon bagel with cheese and tomato. Tempted to eat 2 of them, but took one home for later. Great iconic place to visit.

    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 L❤️VE.

    $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.

    An upper west side classic. Such a special place. All their smoked fish is excellent. The pastrami sandwiches and matzo ball soup are also stand-outs.

    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.

    ****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...

    You'd never know just by looking from the outside in, but this place is incredible. Quality of the food and service is legendary and consistently exceptional!
