I visited NY on Sept 20, and was craving good deli food. Well, I found it. Had a pastrami sandwich. It was the best. And so were the pickles and cole slaw. Wish I could get it here in Wichita, KS.

I was craving chopped liver, so I gave this place a try and was thrilled! We were treated to free gribenes and chocolate soda shots, on top of the usual pickles (AMAZING!) and cole slaw (pretty good). My sandwich was pricey, but it was so filled with chopped liver, I could have made a 2nd lunch out of it, and then it's not such a bad price! My friend and I split a latke which was good. She enjoyed her pastrami sandwich a lot. I'd go back!

Yes, I too yearn for the days of the old 2nd Avenue Deli on 10th and Second Avenue. The place is as comfortable as the 6-Train at rush hour. The service at the new 2nd Avenue Deli is poor...cold, mean, and slow. For the prices they charge, they should be beaming. As for the food. Why 2nd Avenue Deli, why? Their pastrami is fatty, tough, and not very hot. To top it off, it lacks the flavor of the original. I understand that overhead in Manhattan is through the roof. I will pay for quality. This new 2nd Avenue Deli is just so disappointing. Get your act together, because you've lost your loyal followers.

Kind of pricey, but we knew that. Our waiter was great. My brisket sandwich was just superb, you can't make that at home. I'd have the exact same thing again and probably never try anything else. The Mrs. had gefilta fish which she liked. The carrots served with were real dull, but I told her to get fries....What, no pickles? Who knew?

2nd Ave Deli continues to make the best sandwiches out there. I could eat there every night for two weeks and not get sick of it.

Ah, for the old 2nd Ave. I don't know what happened, but it's just not as good anymore. Not as moist and delicious, that's for sure.
