This is an authentic old school neighborhood kosher deli dating back about 80 years, when the Upper West Side was home largely to first generation Jewish people from Eastern Europe. They've lasted that long without being featured in movies and without the benefit of the tourist market for one reason: the food is damn good. While the atmosphere is a bit spartan, it's been renovated recently, the place is clean and the pastrami and such are as good as if not better than any other, more famous or glitzy deli in NYC. If you're on the UWS, there is no other deli that comes close in terms of authenticity and quality. PS While not as famous as the Theater District delis or where Harry met Sally, there is a celebrity connection. Fine & Schapiro is a favorite of some well-known Upper West Siders whose photos you can see behind the counter, and who stop by in person on occasion as well.
