PHLReview

For you, it’s not brunch without a side of smoked fish and a bagel topped with a schmear of cream cheese the size of your fist. For the closest thing to New York without any bridges or tunnels required, Queen Village’s Famous 4th Street Deli is your best bet. They don’t take reservations, but there’s no one else in town stacking corned beef higher or spreading cream cheese thicker.
