Attached to a grocery store of the same name, the tiny Rafcio Deli serves a funny mix of fish and chips plus various Polish offerings. Unless you speak the language, be prepared to point out your selection on the menu if you stray from signature: four breaded fillets of the daily catch atop a pile of thick cut fries. Except on Fridays (when the kitchen must stock up for the weekend), other items have unpredictable availability. You can watch the cook prepare an open-faced baguette sandwich with layers of mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers topped with chives, mayonnaise and ketchup or select from a small salad bar that includes cabbage-based golabki and a Greek salad with feta and olives. Meat cutlets are priced by the pound while the cold, thin borsht comes in various-sized containers. Three lone stools line the counter, but take out is a better bet.Recommended Dishes
