Description
In New York it's a cuisine, not just a sandwich.Sometimes you went out for Chinese, sometimes Italian, sometimes Deli. A Delicatessen Restaurant.These are things I grew up with, and at that time there ... Read more
may not have been a great delicatessen outside of N.Y.C., but there were certainly a choice few winners in the city. The Carnegie and the Stage (within a couple of each other) the Second Ave. Delik, Wolfs, and for smoked fish, Murray's Sturgeon and Barny Greengrass to name a few.The aroma in these delicatessens was like your grandmother's kitchen after she had been preparing food all day for the family on a holiday. The food was rich as delicious as grandmother's, only more. You never got a big fat hot corned beef or pastrami sandwich, made with the most savory delicious meat, anywhere but those delicatessens.All the food was very fresh. The meats and poultry were roasted, boiled, steamed, etc., right there, never shipped in precooked. This food, this cuisine, was the equivalent of Jewish Soul Food.All of this is what we are doing here. Don't be bashful, ask for a taste, relax, sit back and enjoy.Josh Kornblatt

It was already a long morning after the clock "fell back" with the end of Daylight Savings Time. My Son was hungry and ready for Breakfast, and I wanted to try out Tin Shed or Pine State Biscuits (both on Alberta) at 7 AM (or soon after) to beat the crowds. Then the Kid turned on the History Channel and we spent the next 2 hours watching American Pickers. I couldn't say no as these folks are from Iowa, and I was subsequently relieved to know that my collecting habits are minor league compared to some of the junk-filled building that were featured.

By the time we rolled over to the restaurants, it was too late as lines of hungry patrons waited patiently on the street for their turn. Homey Don't Play That! So we drove around for awhile and ended up in the Alphabet District. How's that with going from A to B in Portland?

After passing by Kornblatt's, my inner Yid sprung to the surface, and I immediately knew that there would be no "God Was in This Place and I, I Did Not Know" moment on this pleasant Sunday morning. Better yet, there was an available table. My guess is that Portlandia is so immersed in finding the most hip breakfast place, that they forget the "just as good" old fashioned places right under their noses.

I had a Works Bagel Breakfast Sandwich (with scrambled eggs, cheese, and pastrami), while my Son had the French Toast. Service was fast and friendly, the neighbor discussions were fun to eavesdrop, the atmosphere was hamish, and of course the food was plentiful and delicious. "Shut Up and Eat" indeed!

New York grunge style, a typical New York/New Jersey style bagel shop and deli. Made me think of back home but a bit unrefined for NW Portland.
