Best Jewish Deli

Attman's Authentic New York Delicatessen

1019 E. Lombard St., (410) 563-2666,

Posted 9/19/2007

If only every lunch we order could be as satisfying and memorable as the lunches we order from Attman's. This long, narrow deli on Baltimore's "corned beef row," probably the busiest of the city's Jewish delis, has been serving classic New York-style fare such as knishes, corned beef, pastrami, and matzo ball soup since 1915. Attman's is not exactly a well-kept Baltimore secret--there's usually a long line running from one end of the counter to the other--and it's a perennial winner of something in our Best Of issues (Best Hot Dog, 2005; Best Deli 2002, etc.). But it blows the competition away when it comes to serving seriously overstuffed Reuben sandwiches, kosher dogs, hand-sliced lox, roast brisket, or our favorite, the President's Special: hot pastrami, sauerkraut, melted Swiss, and Russian dressing. Attman's is no chopped liver, as they say.
