After a fire forced it to close in 2011, this classic deli (which originally opened in 1955) has risen from its ashes. Traditional Jewish breads—bagels, rye bread—are Kaufman’s foundation and form the base for dozens of deli sandwiches, such as the New York Special (thinly sliced corned beef with chopped liver on rye—ask for mustard, too). Grab some whitefish salad, sliced hard salami and a black-and-white cookie to go, and it’ll be just like the old days.
