Reviewed yesterday NEW

Not well know like the Former Stage and Carnegie Delii's but the food matches up quite well, Menu and Service let's you know you are in a Jewish Style Deli - On the East Side - "Upper" on third ave. Breakfast of Lunch - you can't go wrong.

Sarge was so NY that we visited it twice in two days. The food was genuine and price very reasonable .In fact our chicken soup was so tasty and portion so big that we were half full after one bowl. Sandwiches were delicious and main courses such as broiled salmon was cooked to almost perfection. Desserts looked good but our... More

it's opened late night, service is great and the prices are good for the food (not so much for the beer). Had the chicken soup and loved it.

It started off when I was given a dirty menu. The banquets are ripping and rather than putting new covers on them they are using duck tape to "fix" them. The mens bathroom was a whole new kind of gross. If you can't clean the rest room nightly....? The place had a fire a few years ago. There is NO... More

We apologize for your experience, I am not sure of the date you visited our establishment. We clean our rest rooms and monitor them . Apparently the individual that preceded you made a mess. Recently we posted several signs stated that the restrooms are for customer use only. Unfortunately we have never seen more homeless individuals then are around today.... More

Had lunch here with my son and our friends. Delicious food and atmosphere. Delightful staff! This is a great deli to visit if you are in the Murray Hill (East Side of Midtown) area of Manhattan and very hungry.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
