    Borenstein (don't know what his business is called) on Albany Avenue next to the shipping center. Not sure if he does retail or just wholesale.

    I haven't been to either. What I've heard:

    Phomen: like eating tradition soup in a restaurant.
    Allenbi: Very good reviews - interesting flavors, but small portions. Others scoff at the small portion complaint saying that Jews always complain about that.

    Went to phomen tonight

     I thought it was great.  I would be very pleased if tradition soup would taste that good

    I believe Dr Rita Sachs, a PA in Dr Rosen's Kingston Avenue office, specializes in dermatology.
