NYC: Carnegie Deli

Destination : CARNEGIE DELI
854 Seventh Avenue, at 55th Street
10019 NYC

Must Tries: The Woody Allen (pastrami and corned beef sandwich)
Healthy Options: Healthy dishes are available but here the Corned beef is the attraction!
Price: Woody Allen-$17.95, easily serves two people. CASH ONLY
What to Expect: Huge deli sandwiches, crammed tables and a line to get in the door, this is a NYC must visit.

My Experience: A trip to New York City is not complete without a hot corned beef and pastrami sandwich. My previous visit to NYC led me to Katz's deli, this time I wanted to try the Famous Carnegie Deli. The walls of this Manhattan establishment are covered with pictures of celebrities, past Presidents and sports Hall of Famers all who have flocked to enjoy the sandwiches this deli has been serving up. The service was quick, the seating was crammed and I quickly knew I was in NYC. 

The sandwiches were huge and served with pickles
(Which were crunchy, sour and served chilled.)

The corn beef and pastrami was moist and flavorful. Actually eating the sandwich takes some creative deconstructing of the Mega-Sandwich. 

Carnegie is within walking distance of Times Square, you should check it out!
