Praise for New York Deli

Okay, it's not Langers, but for Pasadena it's not bad at all. We needed a deli tray for about 30 people for a post-funeral gathering. We had a couple of sandwiches at Billy's in Glendale, and they were downright dull, not even interesting enough to be called awful. Finally thought about New York Deli in Pasadena and we were not disappointed. The tray was generous and beautifully arranged, the corned beef and turkey moist and tasty, roast beef not bad, potato salad and cole slaw could have been home made - and I mean that in a good way.

The bread was just so-so, the rye is too soft and bland, and the challah, while tasty, was cut way too thick for good sandwiches.

We went in for lunch the next day, it was cold and windy, and I had matzoh ball soup while dh had chicken soup, both were excellent - again, home-made tasting in a good way. They can't compete with Langers, Nate & Al's, or any true west valley deli, but all in all, we're happy to have them in Pasadena, just sorry we hadn't been there sooner.
