On Ken’s birthday, Ken played basketball on the upper west side and I danced at Untitled

We were both hungry from our morning workouts and also wanted to explore the upper west side a bit before heading back to our home downtown and decided to eat at Barney Greengrass, the Sturgeon King! The restaurant is filled with people of all ages – lots of families, regulars, and larger parties. Since it was just the two of us, we were seated immediately.

While we were looking at the menu (which is quite intimidating because there are so many options), I was reading all of the positive (and some negative) about the food and the service. The service is pretty standard for a New York deli; not super nice but also not rude at all. The restaurant sells bagels, lox, different types of cured fish, and little things to pair with the cured fish (biscuits, bread, sweets, and other random things):


They also deliver to the Hamptons or they’ll pack up the fish so you can pick it up before you head east (their know their customer base!)

Ken and I shared a bagel with lox, scallion cream cheese, tomato and capers:


We wanted an open face version (which costs extra), cream cheese (also costs extra) and tomato (also extra). Our bagel and a small orange juice ended up costing $27! It’s not cheap but was a nice treat and was much better than any cured salmon we’ve ever had before. They also serve larger platters, which makes this place a good place to bring a large party (although they don’t take reservations so you might end up waiting a while!)
