Ben's Deli [Greenburgh, NY]

Just got an email today from Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner that the old Spiga building will be a Ben's Deli (I assume the one from LI). This sounds like great news to me! I hope it opens soon.

      That would be a decent enough addition to central ave although it's not as good as 2nd Avenue Deli by far. is this doom & gloom for Epsteins? I do like it better than rye ridge...

      1. re: cubanat

        the LI Ben's is BETTER than the Second Avenue Deli; but we don't know that this is the same Ben's yet, do we?

        1. re: weedy

          I actually meant to say Katz's!! I will say that the new 2nd ave deli & bens are similar. Ben's does have a more positive energy but that is just because of the death & closing of the original proprietor & the location maybe. HOWEVER Katz's pastrami is by far superior to anything around!!

          1. re: cubanat

            Agreed about Katz's!
            Still the best.

            1. re: weedy

              Katz's isn't kosher. Most people don't care.

              1. re: MisterBill2

                I sure don't care. I had the absolute best brisket sandwich at Katz's. Took home half for the next day!

        Now that science has proclaimed meat good, carbs bad I look forward to Ben's. In the old Woody Allen movie named Sleeper he played a nerdy health food store owner who was in a frozen sleep. He woke in the future and was informed everything he believed was bad for you was proven good. Welcome to the future.

      3. I hear Kisco Kosher in WP is closing or is closed.

            My nose tells me they are gone. Look forward to your first hand report

            1. re: wineconsul

              Closed. Walked by and it was dark. all the chairs are up on the tables and a sign in the door just says closed. Nothing else. I heard rumors they were moving back to Mt. Kisco but I would think if that was the case they would have mentioned that on the sign. Bye bye brisket for lunch!

              1. re: wincountrygirl

                Thanks for the report. Doesn't surprise me. Feel bad for the staff, all of whom I thought were very nice.
                Onto Ben's and beyond....

                1. re: wineconsul

                  Bens will be too far for me. I work across the street from MKK. I wonder what happened. I was there week before last, everything was normal.

                  1. re: wincountrygirl

                    IMHO people tired of Zev's poor attitude. Also too far a walk from the courthouses.

                    1. re: wineconsul

                      That could be - he was difficult. He was always nice to me though. I used to live in Mt. Kisco and went into the deli then too.

        1. Great news. I just took an extra Pepcid in preparation!

          1. Spiga that Italian family style place?

            1. Well that's just great. Now I have Ben's around the corner at work AND nearby! Oy gevalt!
