Delis   0.48 miles from Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art 79 The TripExpert score is determined by calculating the general consensus of expert reviewers. Learn more →

Ultra-homey spot with exposed brick, big comfy chairs, and widely spaced tables for the kid in you who vaguely remembers having this kind of space at home but can't afford it in adulthood. — BlackBook

The funky, casual dining room is an all-day draw for those looking for an interesting meal at a reasonable price. — Time Out
