General Information

10. Company Overview: Welcome to Rubin's Kosher Restaurant & Catering. A landmark restaurant located in Brookline, Massachusetts has been in business for over 92 years. Rubin's Restaurant & Catering has been written up by The Improper Bostonian in 2003 "You don't need to keep kosher to enjoy the closest thing to a New York deli this side of Manhattan. This traditional Jewish deli serves exceptional renditions of classics like matzo ball soup, extra lean corned beef, brisket, knishes, lox and bagels, and chopped liver. Everything is prepared on the premises, and the circa 1965 decor gives the place a kitsch appeal. Because it's certified kosher - which means the quality of the food and the way it's prepared are held to higher standards - the prices might seem a bit steep, but the portions are enormous. In fact, the last time we went, we took home enough leftovers to last the rest of the week.  As out Bubbe use to say: "Esst, meine Kinder". Rubin's is the place to meet your friends, old and new, to enjoy your favorites like homemade coddies, potato pancakes, chicken in the pot, the largest selection of smoked fishes in the area, and new foods such as wraps and panini sandwiches with a large variety of salads. So, whether you are celebrating a happy or a sad occasion, Rubin's is the place to satisfy all your needs in our house or yours.

11. Company History: Family owned and operated since 1918, serving brookline and surrounding towns. Rubin's Kosher Restaurant is one of the oldest restaurants in Brookline, Massachusetts, and certainly is the oldest deli in Brookline. We love being in the business of bringing you the best food produced today. At Rubin's, every dish is created using only the freshest, finest ingredients. Rubin's offers the finest full service catering in all of Massachusetts. The farmers, ranchers, bakers and merchants we work with are all striving to protect the environment and to provide ingredients that enhance flavor and health. Our meat comes from ranchers who raise animals with the very highest standards of health, humane treatment and ecological conservation. And our produce comes from the best local and organic farmers. Our unique, fun atmosphere is perfect for all types of dining experiences – from a quick lunch, to parties, to a perfect, relaxing atmosphere to gather with your family. Zagat Survey voted and mentioned us "best of it's kind in the area", this "throwback" in Brookline is an "old-fashioned" "kosher deli" ("like those in the Bronx 45 years ago")  that makes everything from scratch (don't miss the "excellent Romanian pastrami) not only does it serve the same satisfying fare that "your Jewish mother cooked for you".

12. Type of Business: Deli Kosher Restaurant

I love Rubin's. Went there once for lunch, and the wrap that I had was overpriced but very very good. Its kosher, so I sort of expect it to be overpriced. As for the catering, I used them many times and they have never disappointed. They are the best caterers I have used, when ordering for over 20 people. I picked it all up myself, but they packed it all very well, and I got quite a lot of food for what I paid for. The food tasted home made and was exceptional and delicious.

Rubin's, is a great Jewish deli in the heart of the Jewish community in the Boston area.  Situated on Harvard Street, it is in close proximity to the other Jewish landmarks in Brookline, it is the only kosher deli in the immediate area.  While the prices may be viewed pricey by some, the quality of their food is the top of the line.  Being that they are a legitimate Jewish deli, you will not find any treyf (non-kosher fare).  If you are looking for an authentic experience, you should look farther then Rubin's.

If you are in search of a huge portions of authentic Jewish soul food come here!  Their knishes are wonderful and don't have that frozen taste that every other knish in the city has.  Their chopped liver is amazing and their matzo-ball soup is great as well.  The sandwiches are huge and often big enough to share with someone.  It is a bit on the pricey side but that is to be expected with any place serving huge portions of kosher meat. My favorite sandwich to order here is a pastrami with chopped liver, coleslaw and Russian dressing on rye.  Very good!  Make me feel like a kid again.

I love Rubin's.  Coming from the south, I searched the northeast for decent  barbq.  I went to Virgil's in NYC and RedBone's in Somerville.  Nothing satisfied.  Then I went to Rubin's.  Baby, it's the best!  I like it better than Corky's in Tennessee.  It is boneless, gristleless, fall apart/melt in mouth delectable, with scrumptious sauce.  It doesn't come with sides of potato salad, cole slaw and beans, but they can be ordered on the side if you must have them.  Order the pecan pie for dessert--ask to have it warmed up.  Yum!! I also love the open face turkey sandwich.  It's perfect comfort food during a cold spell.  They have real turkey on your choice of bread, garlic smashed taters, smothered with cream gravy, with real cranberry sauce.
