Pastrami Alert - Stay Away from Carnegie Deli

Kupferaga | Jan 5, 2006 09:10 AM

Had friends in from out of town and they wanted to visit the Carnegie Deli for a sandwich. Although I wan ambivalent I brought them there just to be a good host.

Results: TERRIBLE FOOD, BAD SERVICE and they only take cash - which means you will need to carry several hundred dollars for dinner.

How could such a sub-mediocre place continue to thrive?

Seriously, the Pastrami was the worst that I have ever had.
