Liebman's Kosher Deli

The Bronx’s Last Standing Kosher Deli

When Joseph Liebman opened his restaurant in 1953, there were over 100 Jewish delis in the Bronx. Today, Liebman’s is the only one standing. It’s not only a testament to the quality of their food, but also to the care and commitment of the people preparing. In 1980, Joseph Dekel, a native Israeli, bought the kosher deli and went great lengths to preserve Liebman’s old recipes. When he passed away in 2002, his son Yuval took over. Then a drummer in a heavy-metal band, he soon became a fixture at Liebman’s—and still is.

For too many people, stepping into Liebman’s is a time warp—from its simple neon sign, to the no frills Formica tabletops and padded booths, this deli is a genuine taste of old New York.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Liebman’s Deli has been featured on Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” show on CNN, as well as in the New York Times and New York Magazine. Eater named Liebman's the “#1 Stellar Jewish Deli Around NYC” & as one of the "Superior Hot Dogs of NYC."
