Talk about yeridas hadoros…
Yeah, I guess I miss Essex on Coney, BUT what I really miss is what Essex on Coney tried to copy…
(Shmulka) Bernstein’s on Essex!!! THAT was great food!November 21, 2010 2:22 am at 2:22 am #711622

I thought the new kosher Carvill (/Essex) closed down a few months ago.November 22, 2010 4:58 am at 4:58 am #711633
You could be right. I havent been there in a while.November 22, 2010 5:26 am at 5:26 am #711634
WIY & so right…

Bigger is not always better.November 22, 2010 5:18 pm at 5:18 pm #711636
Go to Subsational, ask for extra meat, ask them to make it hot, ask for fried onions. Nirvana lol.November 22, 2010 6:08 pm at 6:08 pm #711637
its good but its not the old time deli that i yearn.November 22, 2010 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm #711638minyan galMember
Fried onions with pastrami or corn beef??? I’ve never heard of that but it sounds delicious. I shall definitely request that the next time that I have a deli sandwich. Almost nothing cannot taste better with the addition of some tsibulah. Well…maybe ice cream.November 22, 2010 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #711639A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
My vote goes to Shmulka Bernsteins. I can’t come off the Williamsburg Bridge in Manhattan without feeling my mouth water. Plus it was such a fun place to go to very late on a Motzei Shabbos.November 22, 2010 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #711640
there’s a place called noah’s ark in the lower east side that has unbelievable corned beef and pastrami! reminds me of the good old days.November 23, 2010 3:42 am at 3:42 am #711641November 23, 2010 1:16 pm at 1:16 pm #711642A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
Along with missing Shmulka’s, which was a long ago pleasure, I truly miss Dougies in KGH. It was a nicer atmosphere and better food then the one in Brooklyn, plus what’s there now is one of those Bucharian restaurants where there’s mixed dancing and a weird hechsher.November 23, 2010 4:31 pm at 4:31 pm #711643
I remember in Shmulks they used to have the waiters wear those Chinese caps with a fake black hair braid coming out the back.
The funny thing was, only the Jewish waiters wore them, the Chinese waiters wouldn’t!
btw… I NEVER heard of any kashrus issues at Bernstein’s and EVERYONE ate there.November 23, 2010 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #711644Feif UnParticipant
AinOhdMilvado: Of course there were kashrus issues!
They didn’t have filtered water
They didn’t have a fancy light to check lettuce withNovember 23, 2010 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #711645
To paraphrase the lunar astronauts…
“Better magnifying glasses were a small step for man
but a huge step for the filter manufacturers and kashrus agencies.”
(btw… I’m not denying the need for those things NOW.)November 23, 2010 7:41 pm at 7:41 pm #711646dunnoMember
Caraville closed?? Wow, I’m behind the times…November 23, 2010 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #711647
EVERYONE ate EVERYWHERE; wasn’t it great?November 24, 2010 3:18 am at 3:18 am #711648Thin IceMember
ME 2!!!!November 24, 2010 3:46 am at 3:46 am #711649
The name of the dairy/vegetarian restaurant on 13th Avenue was…
(drum roll please….) Famous Restaurant.November 24, 2010 6:08 am at 6:08 am #711650
Ainohd, that’s correct. Give this man some broiled kippered herring.
Thanks,…nothing like it today.November 24, 2010 12:23 pm at 12:23 pm #711651
Yes, Famous was great, and if memory serves me, they also used to have another location on Eastern Parkway. I think that one closed up first.
