Longtime visitors and residents of New York know that the authentic New York Jewish deli has become woefully illusive over the past couple of decades, making the legendary NY pastrami sandwich and lox and bagel experience all but a greatly missed relic. But if you know where to look, you’ll find all of their beloved tradition and flavor is deliciously alive and well. One such beacon of old-school Manhattan hospitality is our latest partner, Ben’s Best Kosher Delicatessen.
Run by third generation deli man Jay Parker, the 100% kosher star of “Diners, DriveIns and Dives” and the new documentary, Deli Man, has been serving up impossibly juicy pastrami, corned beef, kosher salami and classic matzo ball soup since 1945, which ensures a visit here will satisfy any craving for the delicious, quickly disappearing flavors of yesteryear’s classic New York Jewish deli.
Starting with the finest kosher meats, Ben’s makes literally everything from scratch, brining, curing, smoking, and roasting daily to create the finest and best-tasting deli meats and sandwiches. Their delicious, old-fashioned, dark and spicy pastrami is house-cured. Rye bread is custom baked daily. And matzo balls and kreplach bob in soul-satisfying chicken soup made in house.
We’re thrilled to help you get your Jewish deli fix with delicious, old-fashioned, dark and spicy pastrami cured by hand in barrels, freshly baked rye bread, plump, juicy matzo balls and more—all made from scratch with century-old recipes from one of the last traditional kosher delis in America.
