If you’ve been waiting for Chanukah to indulge in some latkes, now is the time. We do have them every day of the week at Benjies, but now is the time to really go for it and savor those delicious potato pancakes! Why not get some pastrami too, and sandwich it between two latkes? Hmmm, we might need to talk to the chef about putting that on the menu…
Come in tonight for our mouthwateringly tender brisket dinners, and our long-awaited roast chicken, which customers have been begging us to put on the normal menu. But we like to keep it for special occasions, like Chanukah and Yom Kippur.
Don’t kill yourself with cooking this Chanukah (or Christmas, for you goyim!) Let us cater your family gatherings—we don’t mind if you take all the credit! For the main event: our entrée list is full of traditional favorites, like boiled beef short ribs with potatoes, stuffed cabbage rolls, and brisket of beef with potato pancakes and apple sauce. We also provide a number of platters and plates: choose from barbeque cod, lox, whitefish or a combination of any two, all served with coleslaw, potato salad, tomatoes, red onions, bagels, cream cheese and Greek olives. Also try our chopped liver and egg salad plate complete with coleslaw, potato salad, sliced tomatoes and onions.
We have a huge list of traditional favorites on the Benjies menu, but we’ve listed a few of them here to tempt your tastebuds. Looking for a little noshing? It’s all in our Appetizers & Noshes section of the menu. Under the category of fish, we have Nova lox, barbeque cod or whitefish served with sliced tomato, cream cheese, Greek olives and an onion bagel; creamed or pickled herring served with your choice of onions and sour cream or wine sauce and rye bread to sop up every drop; or go hardcore with gefilte fish served with julienne carrots, horseradish and Benjies’ soft rye bread. How can you choose between potato latkes or knishes? Two golden brown potato pancakes served with apple sauce or sour cream are a superb treat, and yet the meat or potato knishes in their baked pastry is hard to resist! Don’t miss the stuffed cabbage rolls in their traditional, tangy sweet and sour sauce; the chopped liver made just like mom used to, with grilled onions and hardboiled eggs; and the kishka plate with slices of grilled derma sausage and gravy.
Coming to Benjies with a date, family member or friend for Chanukah? Don’t forget our meals “in a pot” and just for two—we serve either a half-chicken or short ribs in a tureen with matzo balls, kreplach, noodles, rice and carrots in our fresh chicken stock.
To finish, of course we have the best noodle kugel in town, baked with grandma’s recipe with pineapple and raisins, and our premiere cheese blintzes sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with sour cream and strawberry preserves.
What are you waiting for? Get to Benjies Deli now to taste some of those Jewish favorites you haven’t had in years—we promise that they’ll taste just as delicious as mom made them!
