Star and Shamrock

So has anyone tried the new Jewish deli/Irish Bar? Very interested in knowing if it's the real deal (aka NY style pastrami, good rye bread, quality ,matzo ball soup, delicious chopped liver etc).

    looks like it's time to do some investigation!

      Not sure what bloggers those are. The ones I've seen apparently liked it a great deal. Interesting twist on bar food, freshly prepared in-house. Yes, the real deal. Set up to cater to families in the early evening and converting to bar scene as the evening goes on so it's already becoming a local pub/deli hangout.
      The City Paper's Y&H listed it this morning as their most popular review last week and it was a very favorable one, with the exception of a limited selection of beers. No idea whether that will change as the place gets it sea legs. Only open a few weeks after all.
