New York Jewish deli ala EMP (spoiler alert - you may not want to read if you haven't had it yet)

Spirit chaser THANK YOU!
It is my Birthday Friday and my first trip to NYC!!
I Feel really lucky to be going here for dinner.
My husband doesn't know anything about the restauarant and I want to be sure he gets the "deli" experience! He would love it
That why I was curious if it was only offered on the tasting menu and if it was still being presented!
Thanks for the update
