Replacement for 2nd Ave Deli?

My friend is visiting from Chicago next weekend and was in love with the 2nd Ave Deli when he lived here 3 years ago. Where do I take him now for good homecooked soup and sandwiches?
Rather inefficient considering that Mendy's Kosher Deli is located on 34th and Park Ave. I have nothing against competition, but that area is well serviced with kosher establishments. I feel that a location with no nearby kosher establishments would be better. For me this is great since I have a choice when I visit my daughter at Stern College with Mendy's, Dunkin Donuts, Eee's, Circa, Kosher Delight, Mr. Broadway, Jerusalem II Pizza, and now 2nd Ave Deli (and of course the cafeteria at Stern's).
A good bet is Mr Broadway on Broadway and 38th.
It has great sandwiches, deli cole slaw, ribs and a full Deli, Chinese and Israeli menu
It is Glatt Kosher and of course closed on Shabbat
I'm going to second Fine & Shapiro as the closest thing, these days.
Also adding a cheer for the possibility of a new 2nd Avenue Deli opening.
