Great Jewish Deli in NE

I noticed Abes & Son at 7410 Bustleton Ave. yesterday on my way home from Steve's Prince of Steaks and stopped, not because I was hungry but because their sign emphasized smoked fish. I'm very glad I did. They had smoked sturgeon on sale so I started with that since it's my favorite and it is hard to find good sturgeon in this area. Theirs was top notch -- as good as anything I've found in NYC. I also got chopped liver and white fish salad, which are what I use to judge any Jewish deli, and both were excellent. I think their chopped liver just became my favorite. The barrel pickles were very good too. Although it's a fairly small place, they have a good selection of quality smoked fish that I will be back to try, along with a decent variety of knishes, creamed herring, specialty pastramis, etc. So, where else do folks recommend for this kind of chow in the area, whether its Kosher or not?
