Just wandered into Frishman's NY Deli on Solano Ave in Berkeley - and left 45 mins later, bloated and blissful!
They have egg creams, killer chicken salad, chicken soup like your nanna used to make, Wise potato chips (haven't found them on the West Coast ever before), yummy black n whites - the perfect cookie.
Great atmosphere, very engaging staff, and the owner, Lezlie is a charmer - Say hi, see for yourself. And had an ice cream to go - after taste testing a number of them. If anything, it made the choice harder - I'm just going to have to go back. Ah, poor me.
