Best Jewish Deli near Westfield, NJ

kipfood Apr 27, 2008 08:00 AM

We're having a Jewish baby naming for our daughter and are new to the Westfield, NJ area. What is the absolute best deli around here? I don't mind driving a bit, just want it to be really good. My family is Israeli and thus, particular.
Thanks so much!

    Look in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

      Since that last post wasn't exactly helpful, I'll chime in... Even though it's a bit of a drive from Westfield, Essex County is probably your best bet. Livingston Bagel in Livingston, NJ would serve you well in terms of platters, and depending upon the amount you're ordering, might even deliver. http://davidstestwebsite.com/catering...

        Also in Livingston... Nana's Deli. They do A LOT of catering and they have fantastic food. Livingston Bagel might be a bit more authentic, but I would check out both.

              Ditto Larry's in Plainfield, just minutes away from Westfield.

              Also, Reuben's Deli, 155 Elmora Ave, Elizabeth, is only about 10-15 minutes away as well. Good stuff at both of these...
