Help! My parents are coming up to NYC for a visit and I
want to take them to a really good Italian place in
Manhattan with a hip menu that isn't too expensive.
I've read good things about Il Bagatto and a few places
in the West Village that supposedly put Mappamondo out
of business. I live and work in Queens so I don't get to
dine out in the city much these days. I used to go to
Angels which is okay, but looking for something with a
little more pizazz.
In return for your help I'd like to show my gratitude by
turning you on to the best kept secret in the history of
New York Jewish Deli. Deli King in Lake Success, just
over the Nassau border on Union Tpke. blows away ALL the
legends. The most consistent Pastrami, killer split pea
soup, a very creative menu for this genre. The new digs
a few doors down from their old location is about as hip
and classy as a Jewish Deli can be.
