74. pastrami

My Mom (a native New Yorker) and I ordered the hot pastrami sandwich with fries. We had it delivered and I live about 20min away. We also requested a lean cut. We were blown away!! The portions were huge! The fries were just the right crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The pastrami was awesome and lean as requested!! Definitely worth every penny!

Cherry cheesecake

My favorite is actually the plain cheesecake - no cherry topping. Why hide the delicious flavor of this dessert. It's not too sweet and has the perfect texture. You get a nice big piece too!

Fettuccine Alfredo

This dish is so good! My daughter ate your chicken fettuccine alfredo and hasn't stopped talking about it since. It was rich without being overwhelming with a generous portion (enough for two). She loved this meal so much that we mad another family trip based on this dish!

Vegetarian omelette & cheese

The omelette was very good. However, one normally expects an egg dish to come with potatoes and bread. This order did not. I asked the clerk if the restaurant stopped serving sides on egg dishes since there weren't any options to select the "comes with." They said they still serve the sides. Only then was I able to ask for home fries and a bagel. You need to update your website to show "comes with" are available and should be specified in the "additional comments" section.

38. Chicken salad, bacon

Manhattan in the Desert is one of my favorite places in Palm Springs. This was the first time I tried this one and it did not disappoint. It is a generous sized sandwich filled with tasty chicken salad and crispy bacon, lettuce and tomato. What made it perfect was the double baked rye bread it comes on. I will definitely order it again after I work my way through the rest of the menu.

The Brisket lunch or dinner is my favorite dish. The meat is always tender and juicy. Often I have to get a to go bag because the portion is large and the sides are excellent.

39. Corned beef, pastrami

I've been coming to Manhatten Deli for many years. I'm never disappointed! Food is to die for :) My girlfriends and I drove in from Menifee, (It's so worth it) to dine there (open Table program), the waiters were very sweet attentive and knowledable. The only thing they forgot were the wonderful dill pickles, didn't realize that until we were all back home!!! Otherwise, thumbs up to all. I also brought, Rye bread and bagels and my friends bought bread items as well. The food is incredibly fresh and delicious! Do yourselves a favor and visit Manhatten Deli if you really want to know what good food tastes like. Thank you guys so very much. xoxox Jo L Ray

Chicken liver and onions

One of the best prepared chicken liver dinners I have eaten. Have actually ordered this in NYC several different restaurants but Manhattan in the Desert's dinner by far still the best. This restaurant is truly one of our best and favorite dinner spots in the desert. Very lucky to have them here!

Carrot cheesecake

Cheesecake or carrot cake on their own are phenomenal. Put these two together and it is over the top exceptional. Don't let people lie to you and tell you that you can't eat the whole thing!
