This bustling, long-standing corner deli has managed to weather food fads of all kinds with grace and a few sensible menu accommodations, like egg-white-only omelettes and gluten-free foods. While lunchtime is packed, dinner is more relaxed and has a slightly roomier setup, not to mention a free pickle-and-coleslaw bar. No joke: The roll-out bar contains dills, half-sours, pickled tomatoes, and coleslaw. Aside from de rigueur photos of celebrities with the owner, the décor remains unassumingly retro, with the obligatory foliage, tiny tables, and booths crowded together on the tile floor and a huge gold clock face on the back wall presiding over it all. Bloom’s offers the traditional fare for which New York’s diners and delis are known: giant, fluffy matzo balls in homemade chicken soup; sweet and smooth chopped liver with diced onions; and golden-fried potato pancakes. Deli sandwiches are less overstuffed (and cheaper) than those at Carnegie or Stage yet are made of similarly high-quality, low-fat corned beef, pastrami, and turkey. Bloom’s also serves surprisingly good Italian dishes, including a first-rate linguine alla carbonara that’s lusciously authentic, with a rich egg coating.


Bloom’s offers platters and coffee urns for outside events.
