I’ve heard so much about Elaine’s Avenue M Deli and finally I bought a delicious brisket of beef sandwich on an onion roll with a savory gravy on the side. In an era of fast food and other franchise food businesses taking over the home-cooked food restaurant and delicatessen market, I’m happy to see eateries like Elaine’s holding on. There was a great selection of sandwich meats and cheeses as well as specials of the day. I highly recommend Elaine’s if you are in the mood to order out for lunch. Support local businesses!
