Once, in the midst of feeling like we were extras in Ice Age, Monty’s Deli’s chicken soup single-handedly revived us until we felt like we had a pulse again. Did we promise to name our firstborns Monty? Well, that’s between us and the matzo balls, but the point is this classic laidback deli inside Seven Dials Market is perfect for a solo salt beef and pastrami sandwich at lunchtime, or a casual, quiet catch-up over bagels and a beer from the market’s bar. Heads up, it’s walk-in only.
