What’s the vibe?

Frankel’s is a little Jewish deli in Greenpoint has a few seats and stools but is primarily a takeaway joint. It’s got that classic deli feel but slightly smarter (it’s only been open since 2016) with fresh modern branding and a bit more of a hipster vibe – this is Brooklyn after all.

What to order?

All the classics are present and correct, from bagels to matzo ball soup. We loved the hot pastrami sandwich but make sure you ask for extra mustard as it’s a little light as they do it, and you need some more to cut through that meat. Get a smoked salmon bagel and a side of potato latkes too and you’ve got a cracking little lunch for two there. Take it to nearby McCarren Park and you’ll be winning at life.
