Fodor's Review

Founded in 1928, this award-winning, family-owned kosher Jewish delicatessen is the last one in the Boston area. Fluffy omelets, challah French toast, and fruit blintzes dominate the breakfast menu (served all day), while lunch and dinner offerings range from soups and hearty salads to sandwiches, like the hand-cut pastrami and over-stuffed Wall Street number (corned beef, tongue, coleslaw, and Russian dressing) that any New Yorker can respect. You can also try kasha varnishkes (buckwheat with bow-tie noodles), hot brisket, and many other high-cholesterol classics. There is even a kid's menu with pasta and red sauce and chicken nuggets.
