The Best Jewish Delis in NYC and Los Angeles

We’ve rounded up our top three Jewish delis in NYC and LA.


Barney Greengrass

This classic deli has been around for over 100 years and carries every kind of smoked fish you could hope for.

Mile End

Montreal-style deli food at its best (think house-smoked meats, brisket, poutine and more).

Russ & Daughters

An institution on Houston with top-notch smoked fish/lox bagels. Take out only or have them cater.


Nate n’Al

High quality cold cuts, fresh bread and an old-school vibe. We love the turkey on rye.


A popular spot for signature items like the pastrami sandwich with curly fries and matzo ball soup.


A nostalgic Bruce Paltrow favorite, this deli in Santa Monica is a no-frills kind of place…
