Description: Legendary restaurateur Artie Cutler's (of Carmine's, Docks, Ollie's, Virgils, Gabriela's, Jake's, Columbia Bagel's) last project was to build a great 1930's New York Jewish delicatessen. When Artie passed away his wife Alice and her brother Carl joined Jeffrey Bank and Chris Metz to finish this project. To rediscover and recreate the flavors of 1930s homestyle Jewish cooking, Jeffrey and Chris tried hundreds of heirloom recipes and talked with people who lived through the era.

“Great Deli on Upper West Side”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Artie's is a great Deli in New York. The pastrami is first rate, as are their pickles & cole slaw that come complimentary with your order. The only letdown on this visit is that they changed their french fries - they used to be fresh hand cut fries - now they are a frozen version - won't order again.

“A safe port in the storm”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Along with app one million other people, Artie's seemed like a great place to go after hurricane Sandy.
And it was, great comfort food once seated.
Incredibly good coleslaw and pickles took the edge off while we waited for real good food.
A UWS classic.

“sometimes good and sometimes not”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

I had a very good pastrami sandwich here not long ago. I truly thought this place might be better than it was years ago. Last night my meal was terrible. The "hot" soup was cold and the potato pancakes were overcooked and tasteless. The service wasn't good and the booth we were sitting in had broken springs that made it very uncomfortable. I doubt I'll go back. It wasn't very good and it wasn't a pleasant experience.

“Classic NY Deli”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

If you are in the neighborhood and want to try a classic NY deli, this is a good one. Lots of history, good food, descent service. Don't come if you are looking for a 'healthy' meal.

“As good as Stage a lot less hassle”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Best deli on uws. Recently put in a cute retro looking bar so you can get a beer or glass of wine. Great matzo ball soup my husband says the best pastrami in the city. Cheerful bright environment. Only downside is there are frequently screaming or rambunctious children. But just order another wine. Really great place.
