WENT TO SCOTTY'S ONE WEEKEND FOR THE FIRST TIME BASED ON A RECOMMENDATION. IT WAS EASILY OVER ONE HUNDRED DEGREES OUTSIDE AND THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE A/C ON-VERY UN COMFORTABLE. WHEN I ASKED WHY NO A/C- THEY LIED AND SAID THAT SOMEONE WAS SICK AND THEY HAD TO SHUT IT OFF.OTHER CUSTOMERS HAVE COMMENTED ON NO A/C. ADDITIONALLY- FOR A NEW YORK STYLE DELI- THEY OUGHT TO HIRE COOKS WHO KNOW WHAT N.Y. STYLE DELI FOOD TASTES LIKE. IT WASN'T VERY GOOD AND TASTED LIKE IT HAD BEEN SITTING OUT IN THE HEAT FOR A LONG TIME. I THOUGHT THAT THE PLACE WAS A DUMP.
BEST JEWISH DELI - 2007
Scott's Generations Deli
You've got to consider a lot of things, when looking for just the right Jewish deli. How are the knishes? Is the meat fresh? The bagels? What sort of horror will cross the waitress's face when you try to order ham and cheese with mayo on white bread? (Just kidding; we know we're in Phoenix, meaning deli staff has seen it all.) For us, the most important measure is the chopped liver. Is it creamy but substantial, flavored with onions, just like grandma used to make? Why, yes, at Scott's, it is. No generation gap here! Even better than we remember. And served with a heap of bagel chips, cucumber and sliced onions. Heaven on a plate. Or a heart attack, depending on your perspective and cholesterol level which is why we're glad this whole taste-test "best of" thing only comes around once a year.
