Jewish deli institution since 1908, known for smoked fish & not taking credit cards
This is a gem of New York, serving the same good quality fish and particular sturgeon since 1908. It is also where the beloved Anthony Bourdain visited on one of his shows for New York (his home town) and clearly, it was good to go and see it for myself. My findings were a breezy deli, full of good chat with the owner and character all round. As for the sturgeon itself, it was certainly fresh and the smokiness along with the good ‘lox’ (salmon) from Nova Scotia were classic to accompany the eggs and the bagel for brunch. This basic plate was $25 which is not exactly cheap for what was on the plate so you are paying for the heritage of where you are. I would definitely recommend as having on your to-do list for New York if you are short of ideas.
