I had high hopes for Kenny & Ziggy's after having heard so much about it, and I was looking forward to a really delicious sammich. We arrived and were seated after a short wait, and that part was fine, as they were, at the time, very busy. Our waitress could be likened to a female terminator, not nearly as pretty as Shirley Manson, but definitely as deathly. She took our orders, but she was never the one who delivered anything, and she kept filling our glasses with nothing but ice and a few drops of water. In the mean time, I had the #1 Fiddler on the Roof of Your Mouth, and my friend had the Knish Knosh (I think that was the name, meat, cheese, and taters). His sandwich was delicious, but not really a sandwich. It's meat and cheese served on a bed of knish...in short, meat and taters; how hard is that to mess up? Not worth $16 though. My sandwich was a let down. First of all, while they're HUGE, they're served on a plate they BARELY fit on, with a small cup of your chosen side (macaroni salad, cole slaw, or potato salad) that's overflowing. It's almost impossible to finagle the sandwich without everything spilling over the sides. Second, the sandwich was just a TON of meat, with a wee fork of slaw and an eyedropper of dressing on it. I fully realize that the point of a NY style deli is a TON of meat, but that was basically ALL this was, and pretty much nothing else. Perhaps if there had been more slaw and dressing, I wouldn't have been so let down. Because of the lack of creativity, I really felt as though the price was unacceptable. It certainly was NOT a $16 sandwich. I was clearly not happy about my meal, however our Terminator, er, waitress, never came to ask if everything was ok or if we liked our food. After I was completely fed up and ready to go, a second waitress, Tyla, came over and took over our table (I'm not real sure why, though), and the difference was like night and day. She was amazingly personable. She worked with me and took a bit of my pile of meat back for me and tossed a slice of swiss on it and reheated it for me. It was slightly more palatable then, but I still didn't come close to being interested in finishing it. My friend and I did order desert, though, because the Boston Creme Cake looked delicious, and we were really intrigued by the giant eclair. We found out that the Boston Creme Cake is better when freshly sliced, but the creme was delicious. The creme is also what is used to fill their foot long eclair, and it was equally delicious. In closing, I probably won't be back, except maybe to get dessert, and only if we can sit in Tyla's section.
Pros: Tyla is an excellent waitress, macaroni salad, desserts
Cons: Really it's the price.
