I live a few blocks from Zaftigs and every time I pass it on a weekend, the place is so packed and has people lined up outside the door. The only time I actually got in, we had to wait for an hour after putting our name on the list and couldn't get in until everyone in my party had arrived because it was so packed! Despite the wait, the food was well worth it. We had brunch there and their menu is fantastic. Lots of great Jewish dishes and traditional American dishes with a Jewish culinary twist. The eggs benedict on the potato pancakes was delicious.
