No, there is no longer a Jewish deli on every street corner, and yes, the descendants of the original Jewish immigrants have long since assimilated. Be that as it may, the cuisine of New York City still retains some of the identity of its early Jewish settlers, just as the cuisines of all its immigrants over the centuries have forever been imprinted upon the New York City palate. You can enjoy hand-carved deli at Katz’s and appetizing at its finest at Russ & Daughters, or feast on kosher steak at Le Marais or, believe it or not, kosher sushi at Butterfish.
