A good deli is an oft-overlooked necessity in a neighborhood, but luckily, only 0.3 miles from Rittenhouse Claridge is Schlesinger’s. The deli is popular for its oversized sandwiches, large desserts, and classic deli sides. The menu consists of favorites like the corned beef sandwich, pastrami, chicken salad, matzo ball soup, an assortment of salads, and more.
Schlesinger’s is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily—from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The casual restaurant does not accept reservations, but luckily, its convenience to Rittenhouse Claridge allows interested diners to easily check on the wait time at the restaurant. Those who don't want to dine at the restaurant can choose to pick up take-out or order delivery. The neighborhood deli is a great spot for anyone looking for large portions and delicious eats.
