There’s Plenty of Carne in Carnegie
Carnegie Deli is one of those experiences that everyone who lives in — and visits — New York has. The midtown resto is a tourist trap, to be sure, but its piles and piles of meat satisfy all. It must be an old-school deli thing to include excessive amounts of meat, since Carnegie’s biggest (some might say better) competitor Katz’s Delicatessen in the Lower East Side does the same thing.
My aunt and I decided to split the Reuben, while my uncle, in from Chicago, got the pastrami on rye. Only pictures can do these sandwiches justice. Too bad I didn’t have a camera on me, so the Blackberry has to suffice.
The sandwiches were good, even a week later as a snack. It didn’t become so popular for no reason!
