Mile End Delicatessen

The fam came to Brooklyn to sample Mile End’s smoked meat offerings, but discovered borscht, chopped liver, poutine and whitefish salad in the process.

When I first tried Mile End’s smoked meat sandwiches at the 2010 Atlantic Antic, already then the lines were half a block deep, and Mile End was experiencing a bread shortage (no fear, intrepid workers went to the supermarket, not the same, but did in a pinch).  Returning to the restaurant in February, we waited for 45 – 1 hour for a table at the small delicatessen-style restaurant that imports their bagels from Montreal.  Still, when you’re craving smoked meat sandwiches on rye and classic poutine with cheese curds and gravy, there’s only one place that satisfies.  Definitely worth the wait. Happy full stomachs all around.

The borscht.

Mouthwatering even with the terrible iPhonetouch photo.
