Old style deli bustling and busy with good food and good service .. not cheap . Is a local place with families and kids. Not a cosmopolitan kind of place

Everyone's favorite deli. The corned beef sandwich is my favorite. The menu is huge and plenty to choose from. The waitresses are nice and friendly, not cranky like at some other delis. Don't forget them for catering your event.

Best Deli in LA. Usually a 5-15 minute wait for a table. Try the cabbage soup. I dont like cabbage much, but this is amazing...lots of tender beef in it. Lox and smoked fish is very top grade, and I am a smoked fish snob.

Because I don't have small kids anymore, I have never noticed but I am sure they do. It's a great restaurant and child friendly.
