2nd Avenue Deli on First and 75th Street

I have been searching for a good Jewish Deli on the upper east side and have finally found one. I had the best hot turkey sandwich with real French fries and my husband the corn beef sandwich in years. It was the perfect night for the perfect sandwich. Great wait staff and it was very clean!

      I don't know for sure how clean the staff was but my husband said the bathrooms were four star ;)

        Our dinner for two with one beer and a glass of wine was 67 with tip. Yes it is steep and not an everyday experience but that night it tasted so ,so good!

        I agree about that place. I haven't been to the one on 33rd Street, but the one on 75th Street is very good. The staff is attentive and eager to please. The food is top notch, although a bit pricey, and I never had to wait for a table.

          The sandwiches are smaller than other jewish delis of the same nature. That is dissapointing

            Pastrami Queen is one of my favorites. The pastrami sammiches are excellent but the ambience can't compare to 2nd Ave.
