Arties serves good deli food, which is Russian food under another name. Their stuffed cabbage is better than any of the Polish/Russian/Ukrainian restaurants in Manhattan. When I'm sick I order the chicken soup from Arties because its made from fresh chicken, not stock, and tastes much better. The restaurant itself is a glorified diner inside, but the tables in front are sunny. As an additional plus they deliver all the way up to 110th street so much of Morningside can get delivery as well as the UWS.

It's the only one in the neighborhood and sometimes a corned beef dybbuk takes over and I have to have a sandwich. At nearly $11 a pop, an extra slice of bread allows for a little sharing. To my surprise, that slice is charged at $.30 per. Must be a sign of the times, wasn't true ever before. Fries taste like they were steamed in fat. Phooey! Customer service is no joy either.

The hostess said she is not allowed to sit us because we had a baby stroller - is not that discrimination against mothers with young kids??? I can certainly (more or less) understand that "policy" on a busy night, but on a Monday afternoon with 2.5 customers around .... I would not have been so picky if I were the owner. The food is not that great to compete with other choices available. I would never go back or order from this place again and certainly will spread the word.

I have never been or ordered when they have not messed up an order. And now I will never go again. Sure the waitresses who appear to have worked there for 50 years make you reluctant to complain but... if you are going to charge real prices, real food and real service would be helpful. Scrambled eggs and omelettes appear to be made from carton eggs. Pastrami has not only too much fat (I know it always has some) but too much gristle. Turkey is dry. Any respectable deli would get these basics down.

While some may deem the interior of Artie's pastiche--and indeed, apply that description overall--I would offer that it's a welcome collage of favorites, with truly original twists. With a pastrami recipe allegedly lifted from the sadly departed Bernstein's on Essex (not quite Katz's, but what is?), homemade hot dogs that have a crispy skin yielding to a sensously juicy interior (the bun was a little soggy, though--I will ask for it toasted next time), and the second-best matzo-ball soup I've had in NYC ( a light matzo ball, and the noodles are cooked separately from the broth, poured by the waitron at the table), Artie's finds a good home among the foodies of Upper Broadway. Different and welcome touches include the brisket sandwich with creamy horseradish and a vegetarian reuben. It's simply a good classic deli, without the kitsch of Katz's or the arrogance or prices of 2nd Avenue (where they force you to buy $10 worth of food!).
