The oldest Jewish deli earth, there are some big claims for Katz’s on the Lower East Side (Meg Ryan faked her famous orgasm here). But best of all, it lives up to the hype – the pastrami is hailed as the best in the city.
Russ & Daughters
Brunch at this proudly Jewish establishment is one of Oprah’s ‘Favourite Things’ of 2018, so if it’s good enough for Ms Winfrey, it’s got our vote.
Head here for really good muffins, Stumptown and Counter Culture coffee, and a welcoming atmosphere.
Ludlow Coffee Supply
This Lower East Side coffee shop also serves made-to-order toasts, egg dishes and even salads, bringing the food up to the same standard as the brew.
This New York-based, Australian-style coffee chain brings breakfast staples like avocado on toast to the city in clean, fresh settings.
