Silver Lake’s new modern Jewish deli looks as though it were dropped into its strip-mall surroundings by way of a Brooklyn street corner. Inside, it’s just as disarmingly charming, with a vintage-inspired mishmash of patterned wallpapers, dark wood and a number of rejuvenated yet familiar favorites. It’s in Freedman’s deviations from the norm where this spot really shines (see: fried whitefish “cigars” in honey vinegar; guava cheesecake; and marrow-topped brisket), and their few by-the-book classics, such as matzo ball soup, could stand to benefit from that creativity without straying too far from the traditional recipes.

Fantastic modern take on a Jewish deli. The atmosphere for dinner is great for a date night (which you wouldn't ordinarily say about most Jewish delis) and the food is perfect for sharing. My favorites are the matzo ball soup (so much flavor and the cutest matzo balls), the Reuben (greasy and messy and perfect), the whitefish cigars (a savory take on a blintz/eggroll combo), and the chopped liver (spectacular). Next time I would skip the smoked dates. Definitely going back to try the rest of the menu.
