2nd Avenue Deli

Not feeling well today (if you are a NYer you know what the weather is like, not to mention the way people feel right now) I needed some soul food. Sarge's is my Jewish deli go-to, but since they closed after the fire, I needed a substitute tonight to bolster me up. I found it! Matzoh ball soup truly is the Jewish Penicillin, and the Hot Pastrami sandwich was great with a side of excellent potato salad. The Pastrami was packed separately from the Rye bread, and with Spicy Mustard and a little Russian dressing, I have no doubt that A) I will sleep better tonight, and B) I will feel better tomorrow. I an Episcopalian, but I am also a nearly 20 year NYer, so I know good Jewish deli, and love it! Recommended.

I went to the E75th St location on Memorial Day @ 8pm. I ordered a pastrami on rye & a kasha knish. The restaurant was not crowded or rushed. The pastrami was cold, of indistinguishable taste & dry. The crust of the knish was hot & textured like cardboard; the inside was was cold, dry, crusty & tasteless and shouting that it had been "out" all day. I live in the neighborhood & will NOT return!

Seriously, $29 for chicken in a pot - with ONE matzo ball? Yes, the matzo ball was delicious, but the soup was plain and they're not overly generous with the chicken. Overall, it's just not worth that price.

I have never eaten a deli sandwich on "rye",the rye which tasted like Wonder Bread Actually two sandwiches: a dry turkey and tongue tip sandwich which cost us $25. the tuna, on my sandwich, was dark tuna with no seasoning. the delivery was 30 minutes later than the longest expected delivery t ime. And, we ordered a quart of matzoh ball soup and got a pint; go figure never again

Wow! After trying the other delis in NYC, I found out that I saved the best for last. The food is just like my grandmother used to make (she would be happy that I was eating kosher). While grandma didn't charge me for the food, the 2nd Avenue Deli has the same prices as the other NYC delis.
