What to Eat for Dinner at Delicatessen, Launching Tonight

After three months of daytime-only service, “modern-Jewish” restaurant Delicatessen adds dinner service tonight. The prix-fixe setup harkens back to diner dinner specials of yore — no no foofy tasting menu here, your entree comes with soup or salad (our money is on the ace matzo ball, but there’s no accounting for taste), a side of your choice, and apple cake for dessert. It runs Wednesday through Saturdays from 4 to 8 p.m., with haute-ified Ashkenazi cuisine like latke-encrusted “Chanukah Salmon,” the decidedly non-kosher pastrami-studded mac and cheese, and herb-roasted chicken with challah stuffing. Read on for the full menu.
