Don't let the long lines make you pass this place by. They'll have you servef up real quick. Enormous sandwiches, delicious prepared salads, and amazing soup choices. You've got to try the tomato-basil ravioli soup. Best tomato soup I've ever had.

Big reputation and a lot of buzz but at the end of the day it is a very pricey deli. They have your basic salad, sandwich, soup, sides kind of offerings and everything tastes good. There is nothing to complain about as far as the...More
