Chicken Fingers, Fries, and A Coke... Family Bonding Over Meals At Ben's

Chicken fingers, fries, and a Coke. That was my standard order at Ben’s, and I was always loyal. I especially loved the fries, with their crinkles and those little bits of potato skin. Being a Ben’s regular, I ordered them often.

Growing up on Long Island, my family would go there every few Saturday nights for dinner. We were booth people, who occasionally sat at a table. Once seated, I was focused on one thing: that very first sip of Coke in one of Ben’s signature tinted, textured plastic glasses. There was something so special about them. I don’t know if I thought Coke tasted better in plastic tinted glass, or if it was that since I rarely had it, Coke was a treat, but I was enraptured.

Comfort Food With A Dose of Humor At Ben's Deli

Kosher deli food -- everything from brisket to knishes to chopped liver and more. Their motto: "We cure our own corned beef. Our chicken soup cures everything else."

Lively. Check the walls for clever, humorous proverbs and interest artwork. One of them: "For 5,000 years we were a wandering people. Then we found Boca Raton."

Business Lunch-Friendly Restaurants On Long Island

Even in a 24/7 world, there's still noon to 3 p.m.

The business lunch may be trimmer, its pace faster, and three martinis rare. But a lot of what the IRS terms "the active conduct of business," with half the expense deductible, continues at tables large and small across post-recession Long Island.

Here's a sampler of restaurants in five Nassau-Suffolk hubs, where you can seal the deal.

Glen Cove Road
, Greenvale: In addition to delis in Carle Place and Woodbury, there's this Ben's, the official headquarters. That corporate angle aside, it's also casual and elemental when your guest needs an overstuffed sandwich of corned beef, pastrami, brisket, hard salami and more, after a bowl of matzo ball soup. Remember the chicken or beef in the pot, too.
