Barney Greengrass, New York, NY

Barney Greengrass Restaurant Review

: Since 1929, this noisy deli---and self-proclaimed Sturgeon King---has hummed with hungry activity. Upper West Siders crowd in early to start the day on scrambled eggs with Nova and onions, or bagels with sturgeon (that was FDR's favorite Christmas gift by mail), Nova or sable and cream cheese. The deli counter, where you can get your bagels, cream cheese and smoked fish to go, looks like something time forgot---especially the older countermen, who love to share their words of wisdom with shoppers.
