Overview: The Berwynoutpost of this famous Narberth landmark offers the same great Jewish deli fare in a more upscale setting.
Food: The new Murray’s sticks to the traditional Jewish deli menu that has made it’s Lower Merion sister a popular destination since 1945. And while the menu offers at least 150 different choices for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, I can’t imagine ever coming here for anything other than a sandwich. Be it corned beef, pastrami, roast turkey or anything else that they pack in between two slabs of rye, sandwiches are the heart and soul of this joint. After a couple visits, I already have my favorites: First, the Turkey on Multi-Grain Bread with Swiss, Lettuce and Cranberry Mayo (#29), which is a delicious take on the day-after-Thanksgiving to be enjoyed year-round. Murray’s homemade turkey breast is top-quality, tasty turkey that pairs beautifully with the mayo. Another great option is “Murray’s Delight” (#71), which contains hot Roumanian pastrami, melted swiss, kraut & Russian dressing. I had mine sans krout, but the flavorful pastrami and no-too-much dressing really makes this one tick. Absolutely melts in your mouth. Lastly, a friend called the traditional Reuben (#72) the best he’d ever had. (Personally, I preferred the pastrami.)
Value: Sandwiches are not exactly cheap — the “Delight” ran me $9.75, and that doesn’t include any sides. Still, I’ll shell out a few extra bucks for a sandwich this good any day of the week.
