Seeking NY style Jewish food

Deborah-Miriam | Oct 16, 200208:17 PM     15

I'm hoping that some transplanted New Yorkers are in the bay area and can guide me to the kind of food I grew up with: food like I'd find in a good Jewish delicatessen or kosher-style restaurant in the New York area.

The restaurant I'm seeking would offer any or all of the following:

sit down restaurant or take-out deli
hot corned beef and brisket
crusty rye bread
fresh onion rolls
knishes
kreplach
latkes
matzoh ball soup
bialys
pickled lox
smoked whitefish
Dr. Brown's soda (Cel-ray tonic!)
apple strudel
rugelach

My home base in southern Oregon is a little tough, food-wise, on a former New Yorker. Mostly there seems to be a lot of beef jerky, which is offered as an impulse item at most cash registers. I'm afraid that wasn't introduced to me at the proper age for me to consider it comfort food.

There oughta be tasty Jewish food somewhere in the bay area... Let me know!
