If you’ve ever spent time in a coffee shop on a college campus, Cafe 53 will feel familiar. You get the feeling that everyone inside it has imminent plans to ruin family get-togethers by incessantly quoting Nietzsche. The interior feels comfortable and lived in, and they have a menu full of sandwiches and salads, with a whole section devoted to vegan options. Come for a vegan buffalo sandwich, and stay to finally finish reading that used copy of On The Road.

Traditional deli? Maybe. New York Jewish deli? We think not. Bergstein's just doesn't live up to the billing.

A poke bowl stand that's great for a quick meal inside the French Market.
