Carnegie Deli (
4.6 REVIEWS)

The Most Famous Deli in the World

For almost 80 years, Carnegie Deli reigned as NYC’s King of Pastrami until closing its doors on December 30, 2016. While the original NYC location on 7th Avenue and 55th Street remains closed, the family behind this Pinnacle of Pastrami is as active as ever, still producing what many (including fans like Woody Allen) believe to be the finest pastrami and corned beef the City has to offer. The original location adjacent to Carnegie Hall first opened in 1937 and due to their delicious food and close proximity to Manhattan’s theater district, became an icon for many of the City’s most famous entertainers from Woody Allen, Henny Youngman and Jackie Mason early on to younger celebrities like Adam Sandler decades later. Known for their outrageously sized portions, Carnegie’s motto still remains “If you can finish your meal, we’ve done something wrong.”

We're not the only ones who love them!

Called the "Most Famous Deli in the United States" by USA Today, Carnegie Deli serves what many believe to be the world's best pastrami sandwich.. Carnegie Deli has been featured in every media outlet imaginable over almost 80 year history, including TV shows, magazines, newspapers & Adam Sandler's "Chanukah Song".

The pastrami was seasoned perfectly, very tender and not at all fatty. It was just like you'd get at the Carnaeie Deli. It came with an entire loaf of rye bread that was not only fresh but crusty. Just a very good quality Jewish rye. It also came with a jar of their mustard and sour pickles that are out of this world. This really is the Carnegie experience. Thank you!

The package arrived well preserved and tightly wrapped. The pickles and pastrami were to die for. Did not have the salty taste often associated with shipped items. Had enough to make 6 -7 sandwiches;  advertised to be for four. Those had to be huge slices.

We have had pastrami sandwiches from Carnegie Deli, while visiting New York. I didn’t know if they would be as good sent by mail. I sent for them to surprise my husband for Father’s Day, & we were not disappointed. Every component of the sandwich kit was high quality & delicious!

Our 57th anniversary, a surprise for my ex-New Yorker and musician husband, who hung out in that ‘hood a lot, he was amazed and thrilled !! Everything was perfect, authentic, delicious and fun. Very reasonable as well, considering the quality. We can’t wait to do it again.

I was able to showcase some delicious, authentic NYC food, which I grew up with, to my own children, especially since we are not living in that part of the country. It was expensive, but it was a rare and delicious treat for us to enjoy together! The cheesecake was a wonderful, decadent birthday cake!!! The Carnegie Deli meat, bread, etc., were 1000% better than I had anticipated. Excellent and exceptional quality and packaging. Truly, a memorable meal with my family.

We loved all the ingredients, the bread, the meat, especially the mustard and PICKLES!!! We even ordered the exact same thing for some friends who will definitely enjoy it. The meat is so nicely trimmed. I really appreciated that. Just enough fat left for the great taste but not so much that it's overwhelming. Fantastic package! Thank you all so much!!!!
