Much like chicken soup, matzo-ball soup can cure head colds in a flash, but it also improves your ability to notice the humorous aspects of life's minutiae. Cure what ails you with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of kosher cuisine at Ben’s Best Deli in Rego Park. Ben’s Best is a 65-year-old family-run Jewish deli known for freshly baked rye bread and spicy hand-cured pastrami. An epic dining menu stuffs cabbage-holes with deli delicacies ranging from chopped liver to hot open-faced corned beef sandwiches. Share an assorted cold-cut platter with friends or nosh solo with Ben’s very best super-spectacular sandwich—a teetering tower of corned beef, pastrami, roast beef, turkey, and salami on a club roll garnished with lettuce, tomato, and hot peppers.
Ben's Best Kosher Delicatessen
Jay Parker, a third-generation deli owner, took the reins of Ben's Best Kosher Delicatessen from his father in 1984, continuing to perfect a menu of signature soups, sandwiches, and salads. Jay has earned the deli a feature on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and secured the honor of catering an in-flight meal and camp-style sing-along aboard Air Force One. Bakers knead fresh rye bread daily, and the deli's spicy pastrami is cured in-house in barrels.
