Why locals recommend it
From the green and red neon sign out front to the black and white tile floor, this modern deli has so much old school New York appeal. They carry an impressive selection of savory smoked fish and caviar, plus the sweet, cinnamon babka they make in-house is amazing. It’s crowded at peak hours, but I just take a number and scan the counters. They have a sweet and sour, quick-pickled cabbage salad that’s not behind the counter, but prepackaged in their refrigerated section that I sometimes dream about.
Tips from locals
100+ year old jewish appetizers. The lox are amazing, the best I've ever had. It's a great experience.
This place is awesome for smoked salmon, cream cheese, and bagels. You have to take a ticket when you get in and there are about 10 ppl behind the counter taking your orders. A New York must.
New York is famous for bagels. This place is historic and a must try for bagels and it’s wide assortment of toppings and smoked fish.
