Brent's Deli Restaurant Review

: THIS RESTAURANT HAS BEEN HAVING MANY HEALTH ISSUES (SALMONELLA). WE STRONGLY RECOMMAND TO AVOID IT. Breakfast is served all day at this satisfying family-owned deli offering smoked fish platters with hand-sliced lox or smoked whitefish as well as large omelets and oat bran pancakes. The corned beef hash with poached eggs is ridiculously ample, but nice nonetheless. Of course, most people pack the place for the huge sandwiches: rye bread piled high with pastrami, corned beef, brisket, chopped liver or even Braunsweiger. Top it with coleslaw and Russian dressing for the ultimate experience. Grilled sandwiches get the most attention in the colder months, especially the variety of Reubens made with turkey, corned beef or knockwurst. At dinner, the corned beef and cabbage or the meatloaf vie for most comforting. Save room for the fresh chocolate éclairs or rugelach, or better yet, stop in just for dessert. There’s a full fountain menu with ice cream sundaes and a chocolate egg cream. A separate bar area serves alcoholic beverages and provides its own menu.
