Great Deli In Brooklyn?

We're looking for a nice, homey spot to fete my father-in-law who is turning 75 this November. I believe he grew up in Flatbush near Kings Highway -- it would be great if the site could sort of evoke "The Old Neighborhood." Nothing too pricey though.
Any suggestions?

  1. It seems a bit kitschy, but the reviews seem consistently good: Mill Basin Kosher Deli ( ).

        How about the Crown Deli in Boro Park or Gottlieb's in Williamsburg.

          Gottlieb's is dynamite but not exactly a place for feting. :-)

          I know that you asked about delis, but you might consider an old style dairy restaurant.

        2. Adelman's on Kings highway and East 19th street -
          about a decade ago the place was refurbished with sports memorabilia but don't be fooled - it is still an old fashioned deli with older waiters and waitresses and plenty of the "old neighborhood" crowd [in fact, it is in the old neighborhood!]. Prices are reasonable. Avoid the early bird crowd if you can.
