“Oy Vey! A cool diner experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Nice theme style diner with some great tunes from the live piano entertainment. The menu has loads of choices. The food was good, but not authentic kosher style cuisine. A great addition to the lineup of restaurants in the area. The service was excellent, but had a slow start at the very beginning. The cheesecake was absolutely stellar. Worth the visit.

“Fantastic New York Style Deli!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Took our 92 year old Aunt with us for lunch as she is originally from New York. She loved it!! As did we - fabulous, huge sandwiches with great ingredients and condiments. Especially loved the chopped liver and pastrami. Soup great too. Staff efficient and friendly, service good. New York theme throughout restaurant which is clean and bright. Been twice and will be going again...

“New York stars shine in St. Pete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Finding a place to get a sub sandwich is no problem in the St Pete area. Every corner and even gas station will sell you a tube of bread with a slice of meat. But try to find a real deli sandwich and you would discover the Fountain of Youth first. That was until Simply Delicious opened. The exterior plays tribute to The City that doesn't sleep, with even a clothesline full of laundry over the parking lot. Inside is filled with Broadway Playbills and NYC photos. A New York TV station plays news from the city. The food is the star here. Looking for a skyscraper sandwich? Mounds of corn beef or pastrami are piled high on tasty homemade bread. Need a bowl of Nana's chicken soup? There's is way better, filled with chicken and veggies. The unique corned beef egg rolls with Russian dressing is an awesome appetizer or lunch. The in-house roasted turkey is moist, even without gravy. The turkey BLT is brimming with bacon. Try it with the onion straws. Whether you order the beef brisket or fried fish, you won't go away hungry. Try to leave room for their house made desserts, pumpkin cheesecake - peanut butter cake, chocolate sin cake, nutty squirrel pie, are all wonderful. The addition of a piano bar makes your dining experience festive. You also can join in with a few bars of 'New York, New York.' A great trip to the city without leaving sunny St. Pete.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The food was great and the portions were very large for the price. Even had to take 1/2 my meal home. It's a neat diner :)

“NYC decor, fantastic food & great staff make this a great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Had lunch there today, what a pleasure. Warm greeting, hustling staff that aimed to please. Food is very fresh, shared appetizer onion straws that were really good although the portion was enough for four people so the two of us couldn't finish it or we wouldn't have been able to eat our meals. Kept seeing the dessert tray brought to all the tables, knew it must be good because everyone ordered it for themselves or to share. My Manhattan Seafood stew was the best I've had and the egg salad on marble rye was soooo good. Daughter had a salad and was pleased it was made with Romaine, not just iceberg. Turns out she was saving room for the Chocolate Peanut Butter cake - good move, really delicious. Can't wait to go back!
