Morty's (it used to be called Krupin's) is a more conventional kosher style deli. You can get pork products and milk products. So you will find tasty morsels like "Bacon Cheddar, Chix sandwich," a tender chicken breast grilled and served with crisp bacon, and melted cheddar cheese with lettuce on a Kaiser roll.

The potato pancakes are a treat, and the chicken soup is served with up to two matzo balls the size of tennis balls.

There are a variety of omelets, and a dozen smoked fish salads, ranging from belly lox to sable to whitefish, and a variety of combinations thereof.

Choose from a dozen salads, an egg salad platter to a California fruit salad.

Of course, there is an endless supply of sandwiches, like "The Chevy Chase," corned beef, roast beef, turkey and Swiss cheese, rolled up with lots of coleslaw and Russian dressing.

The restaurant is open every day, and after 4 p.m. there are a variety of entrees, the likes of "Chicken in the Pot," half-boiled chicken, vegetables, vermicelli noodles, and matzo balls. If you prefer, you can get this dish with boiled short ribs.

Morty's has its own bakery and offers up a delightful array of pastries. And, of course, it has a full line of deli take-out meats, salads and noodle dishes.

There is parking in the basement of the building. To find the garage you need to go down one of the Avenues on either side of the block to the ally.
