With spring on the way and warmer temperatures in the forecast, eating outdoors again is looking like a possibility. Which is a good thing if you've been to Kenny & Zuke's lately. Finding a seat these days nearly always involves a wait, and if you've chosen to go at lunchtime, that wait may be considerable.
Luckily for you, if the weather gods are smiling upon you and the sun is shining (or even if it's just not raining), there is a deli at one end of the restaurant that carries nearly all of their meats (including smoked fish and pickled tongue), breads and salads at very reasonable prices.
So you can get a homemade bagel with cream cheese ($2.75) or a bialy and a salad, head to a nearby park and, as your mother used to say, "Get out and get some fresh air. It's good for you!" She'd be so proud.
