Editorial Reviews

A wonderful Lower East Side artifact and originator of the World War II slogan, 'Send a salami to your boy in the Army.' It is one of the very few New York City delis that still carves pastrami and corned beef by hand, which makes for delicious sandwiches.

Sure, it's tacky, noisy, and rushed. Sure, the Formica is worn, the service gruff, and the sandwiches way too big.
