The Second Avenue Deli, run for generations by the Lebewohl family, is one of the last remnants of the Yiddish theater district. It's also home to divine matzo ball soup and pastrami sandwiches so overstuffed that they violate building codes.

Favorite Dish: A bowl of sour and half-sour pickles accompanies each meal, which you can wash down with a can of Dr. Brown's--try a black-cherry or cream soda. Deliveries and a mail-order catalog are available.
