2nd Avenue Deli
OK, so it’s not on 2nd Avenue anymore, but there’s no denying that 2nd Avenue Deli’s new location has not changed the quality of their old-fashioned deli comfort food. Enjoy freshly made chopped liver while you wait for a table and nibble on crispy gribenes while you await a massive pastrami sandwich. It’s the quintessential New York deli experience.

TV Chef Jeff Nathan is behind the quality cuisine at Abigael’s on Broadway. The menu here runs the gamut with influences that range from Asian to Italian.
Mike’s Bistro combines traditional bistro fare with Asian and American influences, resulting in some supremely tasty dishes. From a chicken and duck cassoulet to Asian-style Big Eye Tuna, there’s a dish for every palate at Mike’s.
The Prime Grill
The Prime Grill is NY’s premier Kosher steakhouse, that’s good enough to compete with some of the top steakhouses in town. Like so many others, Prime Grill has its own dry aging room where steaks are aged in-house for maximum flavor. But unlike other steakhouses, this one’s got a full sushi bar to boot.
