What I wouldn’t give for a branch of the Second Avenue Deli here…
I went into the Westin deli shortly after it opened. Although the place looked like it would be great, it was awful. Astonishingly slow service (even though my friends and I were the only customers). And our overpriced coffee was served in paper cups, despite rows of perfectly good coffee cups behind the counter.
Maybe that place has finally gotten its act together.
For bagels, Marco Polo (on Chongqing S. Rd.?) is pretty good. But don’t look for poppyseed, cuz the owner got busted for trying to import some.
