New Yorkers are fiercely loyal when it comes to delis, and the most famous -- The Carnegie Deli. The Carnegie Deli is the most well-known deli in New York, and it's for a good reason. The food here is out-of-this world, from the deli sandwiches to the unusual local favorites that are true New York originals. Even if your not hungry, stop in for a drink or snack...no trip to NYC is complete without getting something to eat here!
It's worth the $3 sharing charge to split one of these monster sandwiches, they'll give you extra bread and you can each make a full meal. If there's room, their cheesecake is wonderful too. Corned beef, hot pastrami, all-beef franks, chopped liver, kreplach soup, hot or cold borscht, omelettes - you name it.... they've got it. They also make a great egg cream and again the cheesecake is to die for! Typical deli atmosphere with photos of famous people decorating the walls.
