Mile End Delicatessen

If you long for Montreal-style smoked meat and bagels, this is the place for you. Tucked away on a quiet street in Brooklyn, I instantly fell for the viande fume (smoked meat) which is really just corned beef that’s been smoked after its been cured. I also love that they bring in their bagels from Montreal’s St.-Viateur Bagel Shop; the matzo ball soup and whitefish spreads are also fantastic. If you’re into poutine (cheese curd and gravy-topped french fries), they have that too. Come hungry! Note: the place is the size of a shoebox, so unless you get there early, there will most likely be a wait. They don’t start serving the smoked meat until 12 pm.
