The kosher oasis, founded in 1954, has left its longtime East Village location and resettled in Murray Hill. Steer kids toward old favorites like noodle pudding, supermoist brisket and fruit blintzes with sweet maple syrup, or new options like miniburgers and franks-in-blankets, any of which tots can wash down with a glass of fountain-pulled chocolate soda. The famed deli sandwiches are large enough to split among three children or two adults; they arrive with a basket of rye bread that makes divvying up the house-cured corned beef (superior to the pastrami and salami) as easy as gobbling it down.
