Carnegie Deli

No white tablecloths here, no martinie’s, no wine, lots of noise and always busy. That’s the best Deli in the City and maybe America.

The Carnegie Deli is a restaurant located at 854 7th Avenue (between 54th and 55th Streets) in Midtown Manhattan, and was opened in 1937 adjacent to Carnegie Hall. Now in the third generation of owners, the Parker family’s delicatessen is among the most visited restaurants of its type in the city, according to the New York Convention & Visitors Bureau. USA Today has called the restaurant the “most famous” deli in theUnited States.[1] It is operated today by second generation owner, Marian Harper Levine.

The restaurant offers pastrami, corned beef and other sandwiches containing at least one pound (0.45 kg) of meat, as well as traditional Jewishfare such as matzoh ball soup, potato pancakes, chopped chicken livers, and smoked salmon. The restaurant also offers other, non-Jewish (or at least non-kosher) food such as ham, sausage, and bacon. Available for order are cheesecake portions of over a pound per serving. The restaurant’s motto is: “If you can finish your meal, we’ve done something wrong”. In addition to the large servings, the restaurant is also known for its surly waiters, who allegedly try to impart some of the stereotypical gruffness of New York to visitors.
