What a great lunch!Guest Post written by Joanna Sable
Today I went to The Centre Street Deli with my friend Nicholas Wong. Although I think most Jews believe we are half Italian and half Chinese my friend had never experienced "his chosen people"! We were lucky, late maybe more like it, thankfully we actually didn't have to wait...1st miracle! We were greeted and whisked to a seat. Nana was our server and serve she did! I told her I had a newbie on my hands and was ready to indoctrinate him.
|Chopped Liver with Shmaltz and Fried Onions! Very rich but so good!|
|The Fantastically Rich and Tender. The Old Fashioned - hands down one of the best I've ever had!|
|Cotts Black Cherry Soda - I have a new fave and its name is Black Cherry!|
|Blintz with the works! These were like crepes taken to another level. YUM!|
As we left Nick finally uttered the words I wanted to hear. "Oh my G-d, Oh my G-d." Yes the food had reformed in his belly!
|If the food we had for lunch was enough. Cheryl and Nana gave us both some treats for the drive home! Thank You!|
What an experience! I could not imagine a more enjoyable and appropriate introduction into the food of my "chosen" people. It was utterly simplistic yet so very good. The experience was awesome. I have to give shout out to Joanna Sable for ordering just the perfect mix of food. I will most certainly go back! The service was so friendly, the patrons are a hoot and Cheryl, the owner is a total foodie and she understands goodeats! I have not experienced such a great deli sandwich,EVER!. The Old Fashioned has to rank as one of my fave sandwiches of all time! The chopped liver was so very addictive. I know I'll be craving it for a long time! Actually, come to think about it...I'm craving one now. (it's been a few days since my awesome experience)
Thanks to the Centre Street Deli and Joanna for an awesome experience!
