Get a stack of meat that you actually want to finish.

A fresh take on the classic NY deli. Visited the Manhattan location. Their pastrami to me was some of the best I've tried. Rueben was great too. Smoked salmon was just the way I like it - hard to describe exactly how I like it but just trust me. None of the food was too heavy or greasy, I left feeling happy to have eaten all that food instead of bloated and miserable. Can't wait to come back and grab the poutine with another sandwich and die happy.

Salt Sandwich

Meat was so salty I drank a entire liter of water with the sandwich. Rye bread and mustard were good but meat was dry and so salty I could not taste anything else. Brooklyn Delis have nothing to fear from this place. All the hype is not backed up by the kitchen. Do not believe for a minute what you read about this place

Worthy of Being Considered Among (Or Above) Manhattan's Big 3 Kosher Deli's

Simply put, one of the best lunches I've had in New York. The smoked meat deluxe is unbelievable. Melt-in-your mouth, decadently juicy house-smoked beef brisket complemented perfectly by just the right amount of mustard on great rye. The house-cured pickle is so juicy I had to cup my hand under it while I bit into it to keep it from spilling juice all over my chin. Definitely pay the extra $3 to poutine-ify your frites, as the curds and gravy are deliciously decadent (and there's plenty of them for each-and-every handcut fry). The only thing that didn't blow me away was the pickled red cabbage slaw; and it was still very good. Wash it down with a Virgil's Root Beer and you've got yourself as good of a lunch that $30 (tip included, should you choose to sit at the counter and watch the action happening while enjoying some solid tunes over the speakers) can buy. Katz's, Carnegie, and Second Avenue have company. Mile End is amazing.

Interesting Spin on Jewish Deli

My mom introduced me to kosher deli when I was young and grew up with an appreciation for cured meats. Mile End takes the Montreal theme and makes Jewish deli fun again. The smoked meat is delicious and so is the poutine (fries with cheese curds and gravy) washed down with a Labatt. Other entrees are ok. I only wish they would open up another location in BK Heights.

Disappointed in Brooklyn

This little restaurant serves a decent meat sandwich on excellent rye bread but offers little else. They import their bagels from Monteal but you'll be wishing for your B&H bagels as soon as you see them. Virtually tastless and thin, they should be sent back. I also recently stopped in at 11:30 and they refused my request for the brisket (really pastrami) until 12 noon. I wasn't about to wait so I ordered the whitefish salad which came in a small dish accompanied by a toasted bagel. This was the worst white fish salad I had ever tasted and at 9 bucks, a criminal event. Pickles are a few bucks when other delis give you platefulls for free. limited soda choices. Katz's deli has nothing to worry about.
