Ben Ash Delicatessen

Our group consisted of 2 adults and 3 children all under the age of 7. For one thing, the place did not have a children's menu. When we told the waitress that 2 of the children were going to share a plate of pasta, she came back and told us that we would have to pay a plate sharing charge of $3. That seemed ridiculous given that the restaurant was nearly empty and that kids were the ones sharing. Aside from that, the service was poor and the food mediocre. The prices were high too for the amount and quality of the food received. There are definitely better choices out there!

Ben ash is located in the heart of Midtown, Times square. Its very small. I didnt eat much except the cheesecake i went for about every night. I liked it.

$100 for four people. For BREAKFAST. We've never paid that much for breakfast in our lives and never plan to again. Yes, the server was nice to our children, but the bill just blew us away. Bagels with a schmeer, some lox, pancakes for the six year old and a croissant for the eight year old and the city's worst coffee. Certainly not worth $100.

We went here because it looked like a decent place to eat. We ended up spending something like $58 on four people(three of whom actually ate, one just got coffee). The waiter got all flustered when I asked for my eggs a certain way, and he acted like we were being incredibly disagreeable, whatever we said. The coffee wasn't good. Food was edible, but not very interesting-- nothing I couldn't make in my kitchen in a few minutes. And later we got a pastry at the front and the guy gave us the wrong one... I guess that's neither here nor there, but, whatever, I'm not going back.

We didn't wait to get in on a Sunday afternoon. When we were seated and had to make our selection the waitress wouldn't stop to take our order, and then got the order wrong. For a $20 sandwich you should get a smile and a thank you, but we got none of those.

Servers can be arrogant, the prices are high and the quality is average. BUT, when you have a craving for an All Beef Hot Dog, it is one of only 2 or 3 restaurants in all Mid town that have them, furthermore they deliver. Oh, and they accept credit cards over the phone for delivery..another convenience. Carnegie deli across the street has good food and more reasonable prices but if you want a less hectic deli style atmospher, then BenAsh is a better choice.

Whenever we go to NYC, we always go to Ben Ash without fail. They have fabulous cheesecake, I love the latkes, and my Daddy always gets the pastrami. It may be expensive, yes, but we really think that the quality more than makes up for the price! In fact, the only place my sister will eat cheesecake is Ben Ash! Absolutely wonderful!
