After my nephew's graduation at Lincoln Center, we walked to Fine and Shapiro. We needed a kosher restaurant that was wheelchair accessible and that could accommodate a salt free diet. This restaurant scored on all of our needs. Tables were rearranged to seat 6 adults,...More

This landmark deli serves up great corned beef, pastrami, turkey, roast beef, matsa ball soup, and other typical East European foods. The pickles are to die for. Ditto the cole slaw and the rye bread.

Fine & Shapiro is one of the last remaining neighborhood Jewish deli restaurants in New York. The menu offers all the familiar comfort foods--corned beef, tongue, pastrami, derma, kasha knishes--that will warm the insides (and the souls) of old-time deli fanciers. All of it was...More
