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

From a legendary appetizing shop comes this retro, full-service outpost serving Jewish comfort food.
BEST BAGEL Come in for whitefish on a bialy, leave with a pound of rugelach, a briny carton of half-sour pickles, and some black and whites for good measure.
Best bagel and lox on the entire planet, hands down. They also have a cafe on Orchard.
