Alas, the Carnegie Deli, 7th & 55th, closed a moment ago.
I used to have an office around the corner and often lunched there.
The best corned beef & pastrami! They cured it themselves in the olde days.
The biggest! sandwiches. My mouth was never big enough, but I enjoyed the challenge. Even a few celebrities... even sitting at your table from time to time. Other deli standards. The standard for deli standards.
A huge loss of one of NY's great traditions, eclipsing even the retiring of Le Bernadin's caramel dessert.
