Jewish Food

  • t

Does anyone have a recomendation for a good Jewish restaurant accessible by the MBTA ?

Does any Boston or vicinity bakery make NY style "salt sticks" ?

  1. did you try the deli haus on comm ave? it's no carnegie's but it might tide you over. i have also heard that a few diners in the somerville area are good bets for this as well.

      Anisha -- Thanks for the tip. I haven't tried the Deli Haus. I've eaten several times at the Carnegie in NYC -- the Fresser's Special (spelling?)-- an eight inch thick sandwich with layers of various thin cut meats.

      There is a decent Jewish Deli over near Kendal Station in Cambridge -- (Kendal Place --I think -- but I have forgotten the name.) They have an outdoor eating area and make good sandiches served with various hard to find Jewish sides.

      Another style of food Boston appears to lack ( along with your Sri Lanka) is a good Dairy restaurant. I need to get busy in Brookline and see what I can come up with.

      Tell us about Sri Lankan food? Are you guys another of the lost tribes?

        Have you tried Rubins kosher on Harvard in Brookline?

    2. Try "S&S" deli in Cambridge.
      1334 Cambridge Street.

      1. Zaftig's and Rubin's Deli both on Harvard St in Brookline are the real deal.
        Rubin's food takes me back to Katz's Deli in NYC.
