Yitz's still pretty good

magic | Feb 28, 2009 01:44 PM

It might seem like a joke to some but after revisiting Yitz's after, oh 6 years or so, I was happy to find that their corned been sandwiches are still pretty good! The food hasn’t changed at all since I frequented it growing up. It's still good!

It's too bad not many people go anymore. I guess with people being more health conscious these days, old timers passing on, and the amount of amazing dining options in this city (the lack of parking I'm sure is no help as well) people have kind of forgotten about Yitz's over the past 15 years. Me included. But I'm gonna start returning more often. The place is still nice inside, I surprisingly realized. It has character in spite of the fact that not much has changed over the decades. To me, that is what gives the space character – in a good way. I realized ‘ambience’ wasn’t really an issue. The only thing missing are the people that used to pack the place in the old days. I hope people rediscover Yitz’s Delicatessen. For a place that's been around so long it's amazing to me that the food is still quite good!! Or so I think, at least.

I hope others will rediscover it as well. It’s on Eglinton at Avenue Rd.
