Factor’s Famous Deli

From its killer whitefish salad to its bargain-basement children’s specials spanning latkes and quesadillas, this Westside classic offers all things to all palates. Worth singling out on a menu that’s more encyclopedic than the Cheesecake Factory’s is no. 323, the Factor’s knish: Ground meat, potato, or spinach-potato packed in a tender, crusty envelope, it’s enough for three square meals and weighs in at $5.75.

A Little Schmear
The juvenile bill of fare at the Westside eatery Factor’s famous Deli is longer than many menus that cater only to the fully grown. In addition to the all-day breakfast selection, kinderlach can indulge in Mandy’s Matzo Ball Soup, Miles & Mikey’s Latkes, and Zeke’s Choice of a Sandwich—pastrami, corned beef, or practically any other cold cut on white, wheat, or rye (don’t worry, everything’s scaled down for young tummies). If you’ve somehow saved room, share the molten chocolate cake.
