Popular restaurant in New York City now accepting cryptocurrency

A deli visited by a number of Hollywood A-listers joins the crypto movement

With the rise to fame of cryptocurrencies, and a food industry becoming increasingly automated in recent years, it is not at all strange to see restaurants starting to rethink their traditional financial transactions with customers. Such a thought seems to have crossed the mind of PJ Bernstein, a traditional family-owned Jewish deli that has resided on Manhattan’s Upper East Side for more than 50 years. The famous New York restaurant has embraced this trend at great speed, which is why its payment methods now also include cryptocurrencies.

Considered a culinary landmark, digital currencies have now come to merge into the payment options for all those looking to eat a huge pile of pastrami and other traditional Jewish delicacies. This institution has been a staple in its star-studded history since operations began in 1965.

Locals and celebrities alike are aware that PJ Bernstein’s is a must-stop whenever they seek to satisfy their culinary demands. According to the announcement, the multi-generational, full-service deli will now accept most currencies traded through Coinbase, including the most popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin.

PJ Bernstein, which now guarantees efficient, hassle-free payments and lower fees, is considered one of the first restaurants in New York City to take on the task of making the food have a relationship with the growing crypto space. This undoubtedly opens the door for more businesses in the Big Apple to implement a similar innovation, which will only help cryptocurrencies continue to grow.
