Great Deli In Brooklyn?

eliciab Sep 11, 2007 07:08 AM

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?

    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.

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

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

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

          It seems a bit kitschy, but the reviews seem consistently good: Mill Basin Kosher Deli (www.mssk6.bizland.com/ ).
