Mimicking the keen fashion sense of its namesake city, New York–style fare has given rise to bagels that double as bangle bracelets and lox strips designed to replace leather watch straps. Don a deli delight with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of New York deli fare at Gus & Paul's.
Founded in 1958 by Gus and Paul Weissman, Gus & Paul's serves up a menu of house-made New York–style fare crafted with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives. Breakfast is served all day and offers deli denizens such creations as the eggwich ($2.99)—a fried egg topped with american cheese on a fresh bagel or a water roll—and challah french toast ($5.99) smothered in butter and syrup. The Dan Williams sandwich ($7.49) floats on a french roll and overflows with pastrami, turkey, swiss, and russian dressing, and the roast-beef wrap ($7.99) rolls up onions, cheddar cheese, and horseradish sauce in a Fed Ex–approved package. Guests can glue french fries ($1.99), onion rings ($2.99), or sweet-potato fries ($2.99) to all sandwiches and wraps. Gus & Paul's also dishes out a selection of cooked-to-order burgers ($4.49+), savory hot dogs ($3.49+), and specialty Reubens ($7.49+). Meaty entrees challenge carnivorous conquerors to a flavor duel, such as the roasted brisket dinner ($12.99), which throws down an open-faced rye gauntlet with gravy, french fries, and coleslaw.
In addition to curating a kosher bakery, the confectioners at Gus & Paul's happily concoct dairy-free cakes and honor most dietary restrictions. Customers are welcome to eat in or take out Tuesday–Sunday or slip bagel-shaped love notes under the door during Monday closures.
