You’ve got to go to “Sherm’s,” as the locals call it. Everyone does—it’s almost mandatory. Matzo ball soup with a single softball-sized matzo ball, corned beef, hot pastrami, chopped liver—the food is plentiful and delicious at this airy, Formica-style café, with floor-to-ceiling windows. Sherm’s has been an institution since 1953. The staff is friendly, they’ve been there forever and they know all the regulars. Go for breakfast or lunch, that’s what the locals do, although dinner is also served. In the morning after you’ve eaten, grab a cup of coffee-to-go on your way out, compliments of the house.
