Old Fashioned Deli w/ good hashgacha?

I need a reccomendation for an "old school" deli with an acceptable hashgacha, preferably in Brooklyn, and can accomodate a group of 15-20.

      Essex in Brooklyn has been out of business for a while.

        Really? Essex was great. It wasn't Bernstein's, but it was pretty good.

          Essex on Coney Downtown is not out of business. It's not particularly nice for groups but it fits the other reqs.

      2. Essex is now at carravelle (Now called carravelle glatt) on ave M and east 19. They have plenty of space for groups. btw. food is still good - prices are up a bit.
        Of course wbg. has (somebody please supply name I am blocked) with as much old school as you could wish for.

        1. Try Bernsteins, which has reopened after many years, on Avenue U and East 27 Street. They are glatt kosher and under the hashgacha or Rabbi Babad of Tartikov. Also, Gottlieb's and Landau's are in Williamsburg. Deli 52 and Crown Deli are in Boro Park, although I can't attest for their quality.
