Best Deli - 2012
Kenny & Ziggy's
Step into Kenny & Ziggy's, and it feels like you've landed in the middle of a New York City neighborhood, complete with the Jewish grandmothers, waiters in black-vested uniforms, and red booths with classic brass accents. Order a pastrami sandwich with meat piled high on rye, smoked salmon that tastes like you'd get it in New York, chopped liver like Grandma made, or matzo ball soup, and revel in the certainty of being in a bona fide, authentic New York-style Jewish deli — in the middle of Houston's Galleria area, no less. There's a reason why business is always bustling at Kenny & Ziggy's. It's the respect for tradition, the absurdly large portions, the consistently good food and, most of all, knowing that this is one of the last great delis around.
