Delicatessen Restaurant Review

: Housed in what was a longtime diner, this scenester eatery is easy on the eyes. The corner location boasts walls that open up to the sidewalk while electronic-Euro tunes thump unobtrusively in the background. The menu attempts to conceptualize classic New York cuisine into yet-unheard-of dishes: cheeseburger spring rolls are more intriguing on paper than on the plate, while Lillian’s old country pork lasagna adds a layer of hard-boiled eggs to Italian sausage, roasted pork shoulder, mascarpone and ricotta cheese. Especially beloved is the pan-roasted chicken thigh sandwich smeared with Cerignola olive pesto, sweet pepper aïoli and burrata. The burger, served on a cutting board, is decent and the barbecue meatloaf, topped with jalapeño jack cheese, is hearty and generously portioned enough to function as your only meal of the day. Staff is friendly and attentive.
