I heard many times how the old deli could not be duplicated when it moved uptown. Well, duplication wasn't the idea, it was satisfaction. And satisfying, it is. The food is sensational, just what anyone could expect from a real New York Deli. The menu is extensive. The service is okay, not always great, but I've never been to a deli where they had top service. Ratner's, long closed, had the most surly waiters in town, but if you were a regular, you went for the food. And, the attitude of some of the waiters was more entertaining than annoying. Not saying the servers at 2nd Avenue rise to the level of Ratner's! And they should not!! Go. Enjoy this place. Very few left, and certainly not in this location.
