Real Jewish delis are hard to come by these days. As Wally Goetz, the owner of Lido Kosher Deli will tell you, it’s a dying breed. Lido Kosher Deli is a hub of activity on the south shore. During our lunchtime visit there were streams of people coming in to take out and sit down at one of the best on the island.
If you’ve lived on Long Island for long enough or you have visited Boca Raton, Florida, then there’s a strong possibility that you have stopped into a Ben’s Kosher Deli for a quick bite. Ben’s has been a fixture within our community for quite some time. In the immediate area, there’s a location in Woodbury as well as this location that we visited here in Carle Place. It’s a haven for matzo ball soup, brisket, knish’s and of course, hot dogs.
What used to be half of the site of a long-standing convenience store (the other half is now the expanded Town Bagel) is now revamped and upgraded to suit this decade’s biggest fad; the self-serve frozen yogurt shop. Catch The Wave opened up in 2011; an independent shop riding the surf in an ocean filled with corporate juggernauts.
