Late-night noshers purr over this all-hours Montrose eatery with a city-slick atmosphere.

Crave blintzes at midnight or corned beef and cabbage at sunrise? This is your place. Cops from next door rub shoulders with families, politicos and all walks of colorful Montrose life at this brick-paved double-decker.

The trademark Reuben will please you, with its fleshy stack of peppery pastrami, melted Swiss and zippy-sweet Russian dressing. Matzo ball soup is as soothing as your grandmother's. Potato pancakes? Swoon material. Nevertheless, New York cheesecake is always on. If you can't commit to a slice, slurp the killingly rich cheesecake shake. Beware: A full serving of cheesecake is whirled in.

Owner Barry Katz comes from a lineage of butchers. Get your hands around the 20-plus hefty, kosher-style sandwiches or daily specials like Yankee pot roast and meat loaf.
