MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This middle-aged Brooklyn treasure is as old-school as it gets, and though it’s a bit of a trek to Mill Basin, anyone looking for a true-blue Jewish deli won’t think twice. Part deli counter, part artsy dining room and part party hall, Mark Schachner’s beloved spot serves up all the classics—from beef tongue sandwiches to gefilte fish. The wildly overstuffed sandwiches (all served with homemade pickles and coleslaw) are a home run, as in soft rye bread with pastrami, which is steamed not once but twice, leaving the meat juicy yet hardly fatty. Then dive into a heap of thin latke chips that are fried until golden-brown, crunchy on the outside, tender and chewy on the inside. Garnished with a mound of shiny caramelized onions, this is a sweet treat indeed.
