Useful information


What’s not to love about this old-school delicatessen? Legions of customers flock here—and have been for a century. Barney Greengrass is an institution, complete with the requisite Formica-clad counters and beloved-but-blunt servers. Loyal fans routinely swing by for this craveable food. Cured and smoked fish, as well as deli items may be the classic order, but they also serve a terrific breakfast. Start your day off on the right foot with a Nova scramble sided by a bagel and cream cheese. The menu offers a roster of all-time favorites: homemade chicken liver, smeared on a toasted bialy, with hard-boiled egg and caramelized onions is always a good bet; as is an overstuffed pastrami sandwich on soft rye, served with mustard and crunchy half-sours. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
