        Second the chopped liver
        and the egg salad
        and most of the sandwiches
        This place is shockingly good and has been for years.

          I like the chopped liver, too.
          I also remember liking the cheesecake.

      2. The pan fried chicken breasts are to die for.

        1. LA's BEST rare lean roast beef..we drive all the way from Santa Monica just to buy 2 pounds of it and a loaf of egg bread. YUMMM!!! It lasts 2 days!

              you know, i was thinking of you sara when making a big order recently and we got some of the roast beef -- man you are right. All pink so rare and perfect. it didn't even make it to the bread.

              i still think that pastrami is the juiciest in town, has that nice bacon-y fat stripe and can stand up to (gasp) langers.

            2. Nice to read all these positive comments. I used to frequent Greenblatt's years ago but after some mediocre experiences, it dropped out of my regular rotation (although remaining a nice source for well-selected wine deals). It's mentioned so rarely here on the Chowboard that I assumed most others felt the same way. If it's still good, I wonder why it fell out of the consensus deli pantheon (Brent's, Langers, Nate-n-Als, plus Art's and Canter's for the traditionalists and Barney Greengrass for the tragically hip)?

                I used to go often as I had a client nearby, loved the corned beef reuben and matzo ball soup, however stopped going because the service is so bad and it takes forever to get in and out of there. The food is good though IMO.

                1. re: PayOrPlay

                  I for 1 think it's better than all of those deli's with the exception of langers for the pastrami.
