This is a Jewish deli with an old soul. Inside, the décor is classic bubbe, arranged with floral wallpaper, wood floors and marble-topped tables. There’s even a vintage rotary phone mounted on the back wall that serves as a conversation piece or perhaps even a gentle reminder to call your mother already.
You will not leave hungry here—even the small matzoh ball soup feeds two. The house-made Toronto-style bagels are terrific at any time of day, while the heartwarming Reuben surely ranks as one of the city’s top. Come dinner, start with a chopped liver spread with fried onions, trout roe popovers or potato latkes with sour cream. Then tuck into a comforting smoked fish platter or glazed brisket, which serves three or more at any given time.
