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.

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.
