    Better spot if alone. I had no wait, often free bar stool. Lox is awesome. Bagel is solid but better around.

    The only downside to this place is the wait time. Get there early or be forced to walk around for an hour and half until they call you.

    Smoked salmon platter can be shared. Crispy potato latkes with apple sauce. Sadly dry chocolate babka French toast.

    The new-catch Holland herring served in a hot-dog bun is the best thing you will ever try here. Unfortunately it's an early summer treat only.

    The wait was long but worth it. We got the Anne platter and it was more than enough for four of us.

    Their blintzes must have 😋😋. Open for pick-up and have a small seating area outside. A little costly.

    Get the Halva ice cream. Not too sweet, and the perfect way to balance your palate after having fish.

    Coffee soda is sweet, fizzy, and delicious. Add milk for an egg cream like experience. Like Vietnamese coffee but bubbly!

    Slide into a booth, order a tower and chow down on smoked fish and carbs. Finish your meal and still too cold to go outside? Chocolate French toast babka for dessert.

    Latkes with roe, chicken liver and of course the smoked salmon were all just incredible.

    The portions are delicious, but on the small side (especially for what you pay). Order a couple of things if you're actually hungry.

    Holy Salmon! If you want to get a platter for 2, get the IDA. It's the "smallest" of them all!

    Doesn't seem as outrageously overpriced as the nearby storefront for the quality/quantity of the food you are receiving. The salmon eggs benedict may be one of my favorites.

    The chopper liver is marvelous. Actually, everything is. The drinks are very stingy, though, don't get them.
