In an old neighborhood! Jewish deli. Moderate menu! Specialties! We tried Pastrami (very good), cheese and eggplant filas (filled pastries) (simply delicious) and Varenikes (Eastern European dough filled with potato and fried onion), a bit greasy. We asked for a clean plate and took away...More

Went for lunch with my tour guide, Gustavo Bodner. Best Pastrami I've ever had. The place was fun and the food is excellent. Don't miss!

Located in a “real” BA neighborhood (outside downtown). You can easily get there by subway (B line). This place is so very nice to have a lunch break on an easy Saturday noon. A word of warning: don’t eat too much at breakfast. You have...More

La Crespo serves authentic Eastern European & Russian cuisine of Jewish heritage. This place is as authentic as my memories can tell. It's a freshener for your palate in a city with an abundance of restaurants focused on meats and breads. The potato latkes were...More
