There’s like two pounds of sliced meat on this behemoth from the Carnegie Deli. It’s supposed to be half corned beef and half pastrami, but it seemed a little light on the pastrami if you ask us.
That pastrami is, btw, our town’s best, although not in the same league as Langer’s in L.A..
They pile it all on two over-matched pieces of fresh rye bread, and send it out with some nice, spicy brown mustard. In retrospect, it also needs some melted swiss cheese and Russian dressing to smooth out, then cut through all that meatiness, but that was our ordering mistake.
They call it the “Woody Allen” in honor of Woody’s film: Broadway Danny Rose – where the deli (the original on 7th Avenue in New York), if not the sandwich, is a setting for some of the film’s most inspired comic moments.
The damn thing is so big, we’re still eating on it four days later….and we were famished the night we brought it home.
The whole kit and kaboodle cost us $25 ($18 for the sandwich + a gigantic black and white cookie + a small tip).
Just thought you’d like to know.
