2nd Ave Deli

2nd Ave Deli Review

It may no longer be on 2nd Avenue, but the most recent incarnation of this East Village institution—about a mile uptown, in midtown—is still delivering on its longtime traditional matzo-ball soup, overstuffed three-decker sandwiches filled with house-cured pastrami, and other old-world specialties. Hot open sandwiches, like juicy beef brisket served with gravy and french fries, may be a heart attack on a plate, but hey, you only live once. Even better, you can now get your fill of kasha varnishkes, carrot tzimmes, and potato kugel until the wee hours of the night. There's also an outpost on the Upper East Side.
