Looking for a good classic deli? Try Loeb's!

Last year, I was in the mood for some matzo ball soup so I searched the Internet and found out about Loeb's. Thank goodness for that- because I am obsessed with this NY deli! It is a block from the White House, and a family owned restaurant. My friend Kelsey and I are regulars here, and the owners know us by name. They even know our "regular" order!

Loeb's has all of the classics including matzo ball soup, potato pancakes, lox, and sandwiches with three inches tall of freshly sliced meats. A few sandwiches that are good are the Central Park (beef brisket and Cole slaw), the Walter Special (pastrami, cheese, slaw, and russian dressing) and my usual- Turkey on Challah Bread. Go on the early side, because the challah twist rolls always run out! The matzo ball soup is really good- it has chicken, celery, carrots, broth, and one huge matzo ball in the center.

For dessert, they are famous for their bread pudding (which runs out immediately, so unfortunately I've never had a chance to try it) and their apple strudel.

Go Monday-Friday before 3:30, and say hi to Steve and his siblings (the owners)- they are so nice! Also bring cash, unless you have an AMEX card, because they don't accept other credit cards.
