    not worth it

    I ordered the pastrami platter. It was dry and for $23.95 they didn't include any bread. The meat wasn't as flavorful nor fatty as I prefer. I think it's way overhyped. For such an establishment, they nickel and dime you, and I will not be coming back.

    Still Great

    So happy they are back. The tongue and the mushroom barley soup are as good as I remember. My father loved the Derma. Long lines, but worth the wait. Very good service. The workers appear happy it opened again.

    My childhood came back tonight...

    It's back and better than ever... I walked in and just the aroma reminded me of days of old. The soup, the pickles, the chopped liver, the corned beef sandwich, what could be better?

    Relatively speaking..

    After an over two year hiatus the 2nd Ave Deli reopened to much warranted fan-fare and publicity. I marked my return to The Deli by ordering a beef brisket on rye sandwich ($13.95) with gravy on the size and a Dr. Brown’s soda. The total tab with tip was $21. So when I rate value I must rate it in relative terms. The sandwich was not as colossal as the sandwiches found at other delis in the Carnegie Hall area but was amply stuffed with incredible brisket. So if you prefer quantity to quality go elsewhere. I, however, prefer quality therefore I will continue coming back until my cardiologist prohibits me from doing so. The décor captures all the charm sans splendor of the Lower East Side’s original institution. The staff was cordial and attentive. In my humble opinion, this is Deli at its best.

    Great addition to the Hood

    First off, dont listen to copper liver. This place opened 1 week ago, let them get their feet on the ground. Amazing soup, pigs in a blanket and sandwich. I highly recommend if you go in for take out to speak with Joe, he will make your experience a wonderful one.

    Not the same

    I was totally shocked when I had my first experience at the new 2nd ave deli. The sandwich was way overpriced and dry. They didnt even serve me the free health salad. The floor was unclean and the bathroom had no soap. Beware of the late night eaters being obnoxious. However the matzoh ball soup was good and the challah rolls were delish.

    Baruch hashem, we're home again

    It's been in the making for 2 years, so let me get right down to it. The food is great. If you don't want to wait, get take out which is what my wife & I did, knowing full well the new restaurant is 1/2 the size of the old and the demand right now is ridiculous. The pastrami was fabulous. My wife loved the corned beef. Just the smell was enough to bring back wonderful memories. And the babka was to die for. The prices are about 25% higher than 2 years ago (I had an old menu I kept for posterity and compared prices). Now that the restaurant is open 24 hours, I can see going very late for food vs. having to wait g-d knows how long for a table. It's going to do well. Abe (z"l) would be proud.
