Morry's Deli | Hyde Park | Kosher/Jewish/Deli, American | Restaurant
Longtime Hyde Park deli, now past its prime.

Our Review

This Hyde Park fixture isn’t what it used to be. If you had visited Morry’s, say, in the mid-1970s—when you might have found college student Suze Orman working behind the counter for her dad, the original owner—you could have enjoyed some of the best chopped liver in town and all the other Jewish deli favorites. But chopped liver hasn’t been on the menu for years, and the sandwiches have gone way downhill. The hot corned beef piled on the Reuben during a recent visit was decent enough (though no match for Manny’s), but the little scraps of pastrami in triple-decker #3 were so dry they made me want to hop on a plane to New York. Piping-hot chicken soup, not too salty and loaded with the right stuff, was our best pick. Breakfast sandwiches (served on bagels), burgers, and hot dogs make up the rest of the menu, posted on an overhead board, and there are packaged baked goods, salty snacks, a drinks cooler, and a freezer with frozen treats.
