The gargantuan sandwiches and heavy-lifting "something on the sides" are back as are the fluffy matzoh balls that float in your soup. Carnegie Deli was closed for 10 months and judging from the lines that snake outside the door in inclement weather, it was sorely missed.
Carnegie is a popular pre- and post-theater spot, and nearly always crowded, but the crisp, efficient service keeps lines moving and mouths happy.
Don't miss the special sandwiches: The Woody Allen, the one that takes credit for making "Broadway Danny Rose" famous or the Ah, There's the Reuben, the famous open-style sandwich piled high with corned beef, pastrami or turkey. Both of these celeb sandwiches will set you back $29.99, up, add $3 if you have the temerity to share your sandwich. Not a heavy carnivore? Milton's Smorgasboard is ideal – four mini rolls stuffed with shrimp salad, tuna, chicken and egg salad, again for two to share. The truly gargantuan roster includes triple decker Carnegie Haul to The Mouth that Roared ranging from $25-$29.
It's not a mirage if you think you see Carnegie Deli in other places, it has exported itself to Madison Square Garden, Las Vegas at The Mirage Hotel & Casino, at The Sands Bethlehem in PA and during the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows, Queens.
