This iconic restaurant offers an amazing offering of delicious dishes from many styles, including grill, chinese, deli, heimish, etc. I ordered the chicken soup w/matza ball and kreplach, and the ranch burger. I would very highly recommend this place

This place is an amazing chilling zone. It's fast food based but the food flavor is out of this world, it's a very low key. the best place to eat out with kids or come w friends n eat out n non formal place. Service is out standing

I was sooo looking forward to having Kishka. Not something I can get locally and the waiter forgot it!! Waiter never came and asked how the food was for anyone at our party. Kiska was left on the bill and had to dispute it. Sandwich was mediocre - especially for a NYC deli.
