This famous, old-school, no-frills Jewish deli has been around for almost a century. In June 2016, it opened a new deli and bakery, so you can take meat and treats to go. But you also can stay and enjoy the cafeteria food, which includes piled-high pastrami and corned beef sandwiches, with fried potato pancakes on the side. And they have excellent bagels and soups, including matzah ball and kreplach. The restaurant's a favorite among the blue collar crowd and politicians, including Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Knowing how to order will help you not feel out of place: grab a tray by the door as you enter, then grab utensils and get in line.
