Fox's deli

My office mate, an older Jewish man, really enjoys Fox's deli in the Westville section of New Haven. Thoughts on the deli? I'm looking for as close to a New York kosher deli as possible. Please no recs for Reins. It is okay in a pinch, but not up to the standards I want.

    You have the Westville Bakery on Whalley Ave at the split in Westville where Whalley splits to Woodbridge.
    And then you have a kosher deli next to Amity Liquor in Westville That's it

      John,

      Thanks for your post. I know where the deli is (attached to a bakery in the Westville section), although I may have the name wrong, but I want to know about the quality of the food and how close it comes to a New York kosher deli.

        I live nearby, but I'm orig from Brooklyn, so I know deli. This place, by the Westville Kosher bakery, is OK, but definitely not up to NYC standards. Better than Rein's, and OK for CT. All the food here pretty much stinks. Even when they try to be "NYish", they fail. In quality and quantity. Sorry.

            Katz's, a New York-style deli, has fast, friendly table service and a full menu—from light snacks, such as stuffed cabbage and large bowls of soup to hot platters with French fries and gravy. The deli has triple-decker clubs, deluxe smoked fish platters and four kinds of Reubens. ($)

            This is very close to where you are talking about. Richie

              Katz's Deli is OK too. Been there a few times when I need a "deli fix", but still NOT a NY caliber deli.
