Ratner's Ghost Sign, Lower East Side, NYC

Ratner's began as a kosher dairy restaurant in 1905 on Pitt Street and moved in 1918 to Delancey where it remained until closing in 2002. It was founded by brothers Jacob and Harry Harmatz and brother-in-law Alex Ratner and a coin flip determined the restaurant's name. In the 1960s Ratner's began to serve fish as well but the most popular items were their potato soup and pancakes, vegetarian chop liver, blintzes and cheesecake.
