What Our Expert Scouts Are Saying
San Francisco and New York tend to share denizens back and forth between the coasts and while former SF residents might be saddened by the lack of a decent burrito on the left coast, New York has always had us beat on decent Jewish delis-- until now. Youthful Missionites Evan Beckerman and Leo Bloom have grown their popular pop-up into a full-scale breakfast and lunch spot, dishing up classics like house-smoked pastrami and trout on handmade rye bread and bialys, hearty matzo ball soup, and chopped liver. Wash it down with a chocolate egg cream or a black cherry soda. They've also added a few innovations of their own, like challah french toast, a smoked trumpet mushroom reuben, and pastrami cheese fries with Russian dressing and pickles. Locals can also stop in at the bakery counter for challah, rye, chocolate babka, and rugelach to take home. The space is cute and convivial, with funny family photos and wacky old Yiddish records adorning the walls.
