Chelsea was once a sea of Jewish Delicatessens. Now there is only Arthur's. Fortunately, that is all we need. Arthur's corned beef, and pastrami sandwiches are the best. Arthur is a great guy too.

The place is easy to find but difficult to get a parking space. Watch for the "do not park here" signs. Corned beef is real New York corned beef and fabulous. Have to go back and try other sandwiches.

Lady at counter was extremely dirty and unpleasant, I had to pay first and than she begin to make sandwich! Stay away from this place! I will for sure!

Go see Chris and Judy. They make the best lean corned beef sandwiches around. Truly a hidden little gem in Chelsea

Arthur's is the only real deli left in Chelsea. Here is where you'll get a real corned beef, regular or lean, on a bulkie or rye. Delicious and very inexpensive.

Thank Liz J
