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.
