Like most New Yorkers, we have a soft spot for 2nd Ave, from back when it was actually on Second Avenue, before it relocated to Kips Bay and the Upper East Side. Many fans never get past the ever-popular pastrami and even better corned beef (we like them served as a pair, on twin rolls). But there are other worthy attractions, namely rich, earthy mushroom-barley soup; relative rarities like cholent, the long-cooked Sabbath stew; and especially chicken in the pot, which has doubtless cured many a cold in every neighborhood in the delivery zone.
