It is really necessary to go with a friend, because the sandwiches are so big and it’s impossible to finish both halves. I took the unfinished half home but it doesn’t taste the same. Their pastrami is a joy to eat and perfectly cooked and...More

Been waiting in a line of app. 10 people for an hour now, stil haven't ordered. It's absurd. After that we will wait how long for the food? Literally the slowest service ever. As you can see, not many people here. Just don't go here...More

I went here for lunch and ordered take out. The take out window is outside the museum and there is a nice patio area to sit and eat. My sandwich was good and it came with potato salad, which was very good as well.

Be prepared to pass through a metal detector to get to this particular deli inside a museum. I had a #19 sandwich with pastrami; it was very good all-in-all. But the actual pastrami wasn’t as good as Refuge restaurant on the Peninsula. This might be...More

The museum is closed on Wednesday, so the deli only offers takeout on Wednesday from a little patio area. So you order and then eat on the patio or take it back to your office/hotel. I had the pastrami Reuben with Cole slaw. The Reuben...More
