Chesapeake Village Shopping Center...

THE WALL STREET DELI, Chesapeake Village Shopping Center, Route 50, Queenstown. Open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. (301) 827-6313.

The service and the food are top notch in this New York-style deli run by Marty Spector and his daughter, Dawn. Everything is homemade -- Manhattan Clam Chowder, roast beef and corn beef, turkey breast, knishes, potato pancakes, chopped beef, seafood and chicken salads, and carrot and cheese cakes. Fresh bagels, bought from the Brooklyn Bagel company, are baked on the premises. In fact, Spector buys a lot of his supplies from New York, such as the famous Dr. Brown's sodas and wonderful Halva candies.

He says New York has the best delis in the world, serving sandwiches you can't put your mouth around. So does Spector!

We tried the Hot Corned Beef Brisket, extra lean ($4.75), the Corned Beef Reuben, extra lean ($4.99) and a spinach knish ($1.60). My Reuben was the best I've ever tasted and not a bit of fat was to be seen on the corned beef. Spector was right, it was tough getting your mouth around the big sandwich, but I managed. A lady sitting next to me said her chicken noodle soup -- made fresh daily -- was delicious.

Meat is also sold to carryout, and party trays are available for up to 500 people (the seven-foot Wall Street sub sounded yummy for a casual party). I'm told the Spectors are considering opening a Wall Street Deli at the Seaside Outlets in Rehoboth Beach soon.
