We have been to the NY location a number of times. This ain't it. The pickles and Cel-ray soda were there, and the portions huge. That's where the comparison stops. The corned beef and pastrami were overly lean, ie dry. You say lean is good? Not on a corned beef or pastrami sandwich! This ain't the place you go to diet! What really turned us off was the bread was stale.....no fresh rye bread on a corned beef or pastrami sandwich is fatal. Decent potato salad that could have used a little more flavor, like a dash of vinegar. The potato pancake was, like everything else, huge, but it was leaden. Bigger is not always better. We shared a very good piece of NY Style strawberry cheesecake, which was the best thing we had. If you are impressed with quantity alone and like size of portion shock value, this is your place. If it is a top quality NY deli sandwich and classic potato pancakes you are seeking, this is not your place. We won't go back.
