Owner Brad Rubin scoured the country to research this Jewish deli/diner. His pastrami is tender, fatty and full of flavor; the milkshakes are thick and oversized; matzo balls are enormous; and the brisket is good enough that any grandmother would want to claim it, Jewish or not. Does it hold a candle to other Jewish spots in the country? It’s hard to say. But Rubin definitely holds his own as the host, giving this place enough character to become a fixture in its own right.

Love the one in Lincoln Park! whenever I am craving a reuben and matzo ball soup, this is my go to! love the diner feel of it and their selection on the menu. normally when I go, I am seated right away but there have been a few Sunday mornings when I have to wait for a little.
