New York Kosher Deli Dinner at Ben's Best

As seen on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" - but don't hold that against Ben's, New York Times readers.  Ben's had been in business for over 60 years before Guy Fieri mugged for the cameras in one of the few remaining old school New York Kosher delis.

Let's go to Flavor Town, Queens, and take a big bite.  It'll be off the hook.

 

The proposed menu:

Fried Kreplach: Brisket dumplings with duck sauce

Latkes: Potato pancakes

Rolled Beef: "The rare truffle of the Jewish Meat" - David Sax, author of Save The Deli

Stuffed Cabbage Hongroise: Stuffed cabbage "Hungarian-French" style

Pastrami Sandwich: On rye, of course

Cole Slaw and Pickles

 

The final bill, including tax and tip, for the meal will be divided equally among the diners. You will be responsible for the cost of any drinks and individual desserts that you order. The estimated cost per diner is $20-28. Cash only. (It's money!) Please bring small bills.

Seating is limited to one table. Please only RSVP “Yes” if you will attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP.
