Had the most amazing corned-beef sandwich before seeing Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway! Sad this place is no longer.

We had to queue for half an hour or so to get in and get a table. The table is tiny and you are sitting touching elbow to other diners. But the food was totally amazing! Piles of delicious meat in sandwiches, I love it!...More

A delis in NYC are interesting, service is quick, food selection, and expensive. I always love the sandwiches and soups, i.e., lox on bagels, pastrami on rye, and chicken soup. Their sandwiches can be ordered as gargantuan combos or open faced, go for it! You...More

This is a must-go to place if you are in NYC. Don't get scared off by the lines or wait. Everything moves quickly. Get the corn beef, pastrami or brisket sandwich. My mouth is watering thinking about it!

Having sampled all of the "Jewish" deli's over the years multiple times, it was sad to experience the last of the "Big Two" on its last nights. With the Stage gone since 2012, Carnegie was the last hold-out for the theater-goer. Yes, the portions have...More
