Wagshal's Delicatessen

$$$$ ($14 and under)

Editorial Review

These days, Wagshal's is probably best known as a premier butcher shop. But its sibling, Wagshal's Delicatessen, in the same Spring Valley shopping strip, is a source not only of deli meats and sandwiches but of an impressive collection of dinner courses, frozen and ready to be taken home and heated. The menu changes often, but the regular items include several kinds of quiche, beef lasagna, beef pepper steak, chicken curry, moussaka and veal stew. You can also purchase bread baked by Bonaparte in Savage and superb cakes from the Watergate Pastry. The store has a large selection of beer and wines, too.
