Who says that New York City ends at the Hudson River? This great classic deli makes me feel like I am on the Lower East Side.
AAA Inspector Notes
Classic. A longtime downtown favorite near the Prudential Center and city municipal buildings, this simple eatery with a mid-20th century design has a varied menu, but its roots are Central European and traditional. Smoked meats, such as savory pastrami or corned beef, and richly flavorful soups like the mushroom barley, are on par with the fabled Manhattan deli heavyweights. Near the Broad Street hotels, the immediate surrounding area is urban; the deli closes after lunch most days. First opened more than 100 years ago, Polish émigré and Newark icon Samuel Brummer took over the restaurant in 1962. His family runs it today. The city renamed the corner it sits on as Hobby's Plaza in recognition of the eatery and its prominent place in the local community. Weekdays, the restaurant will stay open until early evening if there is a hockey game or concert at the nearby arena.
