Second Avenue Kosher Deli, New York, NY

Second Avenue Kosher Deli Restaurant Review

: We like the Second Avenue Kosher Deli for its pastrami, soul-warming chicken-in-the-pot, fat specials (hot dogs) served with sauerkraut and beans, cholent (a casserole of beef, potatoes, beans and barley), creamy chopped liver and the bowl of sour and half-sour pickles and pickled tomatoes that sits on every table for nibbling while you decide. The Lebewohl family, who has been in the deli biz for eons, has nicely captured the frantic hustle and bustle of a turn-of-the-century eatery.
