Federal Delicatessen

Drop in and sample deli life at its most authentic. Mull a while over a bottomless ‘cuppa’ Joe or a delicious cocktail and sample some of the classic New York Deli dishes.

Fill your kishka - tablecloths are pointless as eating 'Deli' is a meal of spills. 'Remember to keep your fork – there's pie'
