Best Deli 

Alvie and Gary's Jack's Deli and Restaurant

You don't have to be an actual fresser to appreciate Jack's big menu of Jewish deli favorites -- but a propensity toward gluttony can't hurt. Go ahead, try the chopped liver, the kippered salmon, and the lox. Nosh on blintzes, borscht, and latkes. Savor the towering New Yorkers, the baseball-sized knishes, the vast oceans of golden chicken broth with giant matzo balls. Or dive into the Reubens, the kosher hot dogs, and -- best of all -- the two-fisted Brisket Dip, on thickly sliced challah. Hope you saved room for dessert: How 'bout a dense slab of New York-style cheesecake? Every fresser starts somewhere.
