Frequently asked questions

Are credit cards accepted?
Yes!  We accept all credit cards at both locations and online.

Are reservations accepted? 
In Manhattan we accept reservations for dinner and brunch by phone at 212-529-2990 or through OpenTable. We do not currently accept reservations for our Brooklyn location.

Do you book private events?
Both locations may be booked for private events.  Please email for booking details.

Do you have seating?
We do.  Manhattan offers a flexible floorplan to accommodate groups and Brooklyn has 25 seats amongst a few large tables and fixed stools that line the counter.

Do you serve alcohol?
Yup! Craft beers and natural wines are available at both locations.

Are you kosher?
No, we are not kosher.  We make every effort to source and utilize the best ingredients available to us, including organic produce, natural meats and locally sourced dairy.

Do you offer takeout or delivery?
Deliveries are now being made in downtown Manhattan within the range of First Avenue to Sixth Avenue from Canal Street to Fourteenth Street. Orders may be placed by phone at 212-529-2990 or through Seamless. The Brooklyn Deli has a convenient street-side takeout window that is operational during all opening hours.

Why is the takeout dinner menu at the deli so limited?
We strive to make every customers experience memorable, both when eating in and taking out.  The majority of our menu at dinner does not pack or travel well so we’ve narrowed down the takeout offerings to items that will hold up best until you’ve reached your destination.

Where can I find your cookbook?
Right here, on our site!  If you purchase the book through you can request a customized message from authors Noah and Rae Bernamoff.
