this is New York and I am not sure the prices are that different from the old restaurant. I only had a few things, so I can only comment that the Pastrami is great (order lean), excellent matza ball soup, the pickles and coleslaw are also my favourites. The service is soso - usually the waiter disappears. Have been doing pick up for the last few times, and that is always excellent. I think now that they have been open for a while they have the right rythm. And yes it is still very expensive, but comparable to other restaurants in the area for dinner

Have eaten here several times. Always delicious. The portions are very large and filling. I recommend arriving hungry. They have a big menu but everything from the roast beef to the french toast is excellent! You can't go wrong.

I have been suffering from a horrible cold and the only thing I wanted was some chicken noodle soup. So my husband ordered us some soup from Second Avenue Deli, along with a pastrami sandwich and a chocolate babka. We ordered a quart of the soup. I wish I could post photos on menupages to show you what the soup looked like. It was 95% broth and the rest was just noodles. No chicken, no little pieces of carrrot. Nothing. It basically looks to me like they make one broth and toss it with some noodles to make chicken noodle soup. The pastrami and babka were good, but when you are sick, there is nothing like a good chicken noodle soup and this just is a disgrace to an establishment that claims to be the best at anything.

After a few months, the 2nd Ave. Deli uptown draws few customers, and empty tables every night tell the truth that prices are simply way too high, even for the UES. Only foreign tourist in midtown, and expense account lunch customers in midtown, pay such prices for sandwiches and soup and such. And to think, you must pay extra for lean meat in your sandwich, if you don't want fat and grizzle. Sorry, 2nd Ave., but your prices are too high and I won't come back to your deserted restaurant.

Went with a friend on Sunday morning for breakfast: over $50.00 for a disappointing meal. My pastrami hash was tasteless and her potato pancakes were greasy. Eggs on my has were ordered 'over easy' and arrived over and hard. Well, I've been wanting to check it out and I'm glad I did for breakfast and not for dinner. Prices are absurd.

Ordered a large chicken noodle soup for take-out. For $16 I got a quart of tasty broth, a few limp noodles and no chicken. Won't ever go back. Prices are obscene, even for upper east siders.
