Ruminations & Ronnifications

What is the single most important quality and characteristic of a Kosher Deli Owner?

In my 46 years on the job, many qualities come to mind, but I have determined that one cannot survive this business without having a sense of humor and the ability to laugh...at everything.

I tell the good Doctor that I took the order from his nurse.
Without apology, he abruptly hangs up the phone.

Customers' Corner

Thank You For the Amazing Reviews!

"Ben's served me the finest lean pastrami on rye that I've ever tasted. I ordered a half-sandwich. The meat was warm, but not hot. It was perfect. I had been craving a good bowl of matzoh ball soup for some time, and Ben's is delicious.”

- Vicky via Yelp

"This restaurant is fabulous and gets better every time I go! They now have a half sandwich and bowl of soup that's the right size for me. Every visit to New York is worthy of a trip to Ben's!”

- Edward via Yelp (Manhattan location)

"Awesome service, Best pastrami I have eaten, large portions, very reasonable prices!"

Josh Cohen just can’t get a break. He’s single, broke, and to top it all off, his apartment’s been robbed of everything but a Neil Diamond CD. Soon though, his luck takes a turn when a mysterious envelope arrives that changes his life forever. Nominated for six Drama Desk Awards and the Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical, The Other Josh Cohen is a hilarious romantic comedy that the critics call “Superb”, “an original musical with a life-affirming message and songs worth remembering”. “Consistently funny” (New York Times Critics' Pick). “Imagine 'Seinfeld' meets Rodgers and Hart.” "It’s hard to know where to start heaping on the praise” (Backstage).

Come see your new favorite musical… The Other Josh Cohen.
