Go to a good Jewish deli in Manhattan. Try the Second Ave Deli or the Carnegie Deli. You'll have a nice sammich if nothing else.

Corned beef and cabbage

The Irish used bacon and cabbage, back in the old country. They came here and found the Jewish brisket was cheaper than bacon, and a new trend was started.

Corned beef on Rye or a Rueben. Perhaps some chopped liver would be good and of course chicken soup or cheese cake for desert. Don't try gefilte fish, its nasty.

Katz Deli on the Lower East Side. Carnegie Deli Uptown...Pastrami &/or Corned Beef And you will get sticker shock!

Not really Jewish, but the Reuben sandwich! The best!

Never heard of a Jewish restaurant. But I've never been to NYC either.

Expect to pay $11 for a corned beef sandwich at Katzs and $2.25 for a dog. Its worth EVERY penny!

If you want, I'll meet you for an early lunch. Afterwards we could get into a high speed car chase around Manhattan and maybe spray paint some NYPD patrolcars on Elisabeth street.

DO NOT EAT THE GEFILTE FISH. It's just wrong. The chopped liver too. Stick with the Matzoh balls and Kasha Vanishka(like jewish pasta). Have a corned beef sandwich, a potato pancake and a few hewbrew national hot Dogs.

You find that afetr ingesting theses, the Israeli policy towards Palisinian stupidity makes much more sense.

Yes, beside controlling the world, we put mind altering substances in the deli food.

Don't forget the bagels and lox.(You want to buy some Israel bonds after those)

I cannot believe that liver is kosher...but it sure sounds like it is. Suffice it to say that if cars were edible, I wouldn't eat the oil filter.

an overstuffed corned beef and pastrami sandwich with thousand island dressing and cole slaw(on the snadwich)

liver is actually bordering on not kosher... after we cook liver, we have to clean the oven before cooking anything else.

When you're in NYC tell me where, and I'll tell you where to go.
Depends on budget and location in that order.

Best of the best = prime grill
Best bargain, all hours food = ali baba's
All around, price, location, service, etc = la marais
