Went here with some friends after a baseball tournament and was extremely pleased with the food and service. I am a fan of pastrami but I am an even bigger fan of GOOD QUALITY pastrami and Manhattans was that and more. I was warned that the sandwiches were large and that I may want to share with my son. The food came out and my friends were right, the portions where large however after taking my first bite, I was disappointed that I had decided to share. After finishing my half sandwich then I looked like the "doggie in the window" at my son hoping that he wouldn't want to finish his meal, no such luck. Apparently he is a growing boy because he finished his as well. Oh what a parent will do to satisfy their child. Didn't try any of the desserts even though I do have a sweet tooth but next time I'm back, I've got my eye on the carrot cake. Anyway a great experience, great food and great service!!
