I had never heard of Murray's until last week. I wanted to cook a kosher meal for my friends. I found KMP supermarket on the web. Then, I stumbled into Murray's across Broadway.... Wow! One shops for food and ingredients all the time. Most of the time it's mundane, every once in a while it's a special occasion, so one... More

Murray's is a vestige of what the Upper West Side was before the onslaught of Victoria's Secret, PC Richard, and other chain stores. It offers personal service, exceptional deli and smoked fish in a small shop that hasn't changed in decades--thank goodness. The lox is hand-sliced more finely than anywhere else, and the bialys are always fresh. I even got... More

They have one of the best Cheddar Cheeses in the world. It's the one from Canada and it is the one that is rather sharp. Wonderful !

What better luck than to live across from Murray's where I have always been greeted and offered a taste of salmon. And, now that I am a regular, I continue to enjoy: the fish (the sable is a personal favorite), the bagels and seedless rye, a host of cream cheeses, chicken liver, kugel, rugelah, chicken soup and those giant bags...

A neighborhood mainstay since as long as I can remember, Murray's is absolutely the place to go for lox, herring, and other fish delicacies. The Nova is the best I've ever had--it just melts in your mouth. It's not cheap, but there are lox/bagel specials Mon. to Wed. My family also loves their potato salad and I love the cucumber...

Murray's Sturgeon Shop on the West side of Broadway between 89th and 90th Street. A tiny shop -- perhaps 15 feet wide, with the best smoked fish and herring in New York. Take out only: no tables. Try their vegetarian chop liver: it's sounds like a terrible compromise, but it's sensational. I've no idea what they put in it. Although... More

This is the real deal - no tourist trap. The schav (sorrel soup) is the best I've ever had, the borscht is great. The eastern smoked salmon is a bit pricier - but worth it. The sable and the creamed herring is the best. Far, far better than Zabar's or Fairways. The herring is oil is second only to Russ... More

Murray's was once a busy place, with "kosher style" appetizing, and with lines of customers out the door. Now it is a relic of an earlier era. For the extensive "new" population of the Upper West Side who keep kosher, it is no longer "kosher" enough. For those who want fancy foods, and who care little if at all about... More

Bagels and smoked salmon, all the fixings. Nothing better. Shop is open daily and in time to lay out a spread for friends and family. Everything fresh and the place is immaculately clean.

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
