Zaftig's is always good, no matter what you get. It's an updated Jewish deli, with lots of booths and tables for parties of all sizes. You can get extensive breakfast here at all hours, including blintzes, latkes with applesauce, and plain old poached eggs with, of course, a bagel and schmear. This is of course a terrific place to get lox, but even the club sandwiches are good. The staff are helpful and friendly. Huge HUGE wait for brunch on weekends - when they say 90 minutes, they mean it. Leave your name and wander at Booksmith, then check back. Just have a snack before you come. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there's something here to please the most finicky relative.
