Ben’s Deli

A Veteran Kosher Deli Chain

Ben’s Deli has been in the deli business for 42 years — with the same name and the same owner: Ronnie Dragoon. Ronnie started it all in 1972 when he took a chance and purchased a failing deli in Baldwin, Long Island. For only 5,000 dollars, Ronnie picked up the business and renamed it (after his father’s business, Ben’s Deli). Under new ownership, the business slowly grew, and after ten years he would open another location, and after six years another. Eventually he had the opportunity to pick up the old and venerated Lou G. Siegel’s Deli in Manhattan’s Garment District. This deli, which was over seventy years old at the time, was a staple among locals. Ronnie, well aware of its history, continued its tradition.

Ben’s Deli boasts the finest authentic New York delicatessen and eastern European comfort foods. Anything, from their soup’s, salads, sandwiches and dinners are freshly prepared. Want to eat like a New Yorker? There are few better places to dine. Try their delicious homemade soups, hot pastrami, baked knishes, and crunchy pickles. It’s the type of food New Yorkers have been eating for generations. After over 40 years of success Ben’s Deli has become a widespread New York chain with a store in Midtown Manhattan, Bayside Queens, and several others in Long Island.
