70. Grilled chicken breast with lettuce, tomato, and onion

During this crisis I have been ordering takeout and delivery from Manhattan in the Desert biweekly. The food is always delicious and fresh. The grilled chicken sandwich is wonderful they have the best onion rings in Palm springs. and their coconut cake is the stuff dreams are made of. I am very thankful that they are here and continue to provide delicious, safe and reasonably priced food to the community. They have not inflated their prices nor skimped on the quality or quantity of food. Thank you!

25. Turkey, chopped liver, Swiss cheese

Love the food at Manhattans. Always a go to when any family or friends visit the desert. Portions are large and food is always wonderful. We have been supporting the restaurant weekly since the stay at home order. They always are so appreciative of our orders and it is always ready for pickup when we arrive. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

20. Corned beef, roast beef

Ginormous. Deliciousness. Thinly sliced meat piled so high you'll need to save half for dinner, or great to share. Matzo soup is amazing as well!

The team at Manhattan in the Desert put together a terrific dine-out dinner for our family. The food quality was great as usual, the packaging was appropriate and everything was included that you would expect as if we had been in the dining room. So nice to have a break from scavenging the pantry to try and please everyone with the limited choices here at home. We really appreciate you guys. Keep up the good work. We'll be in to see you again for another take-home I'm sure and are looking forward to dining-in with you as soon as possible. Good luck!

74. pastrami

Outstanding pastrami. Very lean and piled high. Delicious!! Served with some of the best pickles and sauerkraut I've ever eaten. The potato salad was at least as good as mine (possibly better) . Will absolutely be back!!

28. Brisket, turkey, jack cheese

We moved to the desert 5yrs ago and discovered Manhattan In The Desert. Every time we go out to eat we say we have to try something new. But always end up at your restaurant. We just love every dish we've ever ordered and the menu gives you every choice you could ever want. The portions are huge and the service is excellent!!!! We never leave without stopping at the front picking up the delicious bakery items and fresh bread and sliced meats to-go. My favorite sandwich is the Super Combo with Turkey/brisket/Swiss cheese and I get a side of adjus to dip it in. But everything we've had is beyond mouth watering. Thank you all for your posts on Facebook/instagram and great customer service! Forever patrons

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!

Caramelized banana-pecan french toast with brown sugar maple syrup

It was about a year ago - but my husband and I made a late night date trip to have dinner. We didn't talk much during dinner except for the constant sounds of "mmmm", "yummm" and various eating of delightful goodness. Probably the best thing I've ever eaten - ever. When I have amazing food - I kind of dance in my seat - well I was on cloud 9, wiggling in the booth. Amazing!!! Too bad we were so stuffed because upon leaving I saw the dessert case and pretty much licked the glass for a few minutes. Such a treasure!

39. Corned beef, pastrami

I had to try this deli out! With current stay at home orders, we called our order in and picked it up. They were awesome from the phone call to the pick up! We ordered two sandwiches which we could not finish ! The roast beef with chili's was amazing! Fresh chili's brings out the best of the piled high roast beef. A side of fries and a pile of fresh pickles finished off the combo. The second sandwich was a monster! Pastrami and corned beef on rye. This one has 1/2 sitting in the fridge to finish today! Huge, fresh, piles of meat on fresh bread! I topped (my 1/2) with coleslaw and deli mustard. The pickles are crunchy and tangy... I over did it on the desserts! We have a weeks worth! German chocolate cake (huge) was a slice for two! Rich and full of creamy frosting with a crunchy top. That was our choice for the night. For the rest of the week... we ordered the Double Chocolate Cherry Cheese Cake. It looks rich and based on the weight... it's going to be awesome! Oh did I mention the baseball sized Ding Dong? I had to try this but after bringing these three home... we'll have to pace ourselves and increase the exercise time! I want to thank Cliff who took our order, coached us through the menu and checked me out. I know these are tough times but you're incredible attitude and delicious food will bring us back and others to your door! Thanks for being there for all of us!

Lox trim

And an Egg Cream, one of the few places in California where you can get this drink! The Lox breakfast is delicious and usually more than I can eat. I always think of trying something else, but can never pass up the lox. And then, I have to stop at the bakery for one of their treats and the rye bread ends. The wait staff is so attentive and helpful--the last time I was here, the waiter not only brought a take out box, but added cream cheese. Love this place!

26. Liverwurst, chopped liver, Swiss cheese

MITD's chopped liver is AWESOME! Best I've ever had. They don't skimp on the portions, either. In fact, I frequently get 2 meals out of one order, although the pickle dish never makes it to day 2! :-)
