“Soup and sandwich, that is a meal!” – Jerry to Bania at Mendy’s Deli on Seinfeld

Mendy’s Kosher Delicatessen in Midtown Manhattan was made famous when Jerry Seinfeld argued with Kenny Bania over whether soup is a dinner on “Seinfeld.” Today, the Jewish deli founded by Mendy Merel in 1988 is popular in its own right for their Glatt-Kosher corned beef, pastrami, and legendary meal-worthy soups. Their famous over-stuffed sandwich combos are the stuff of legend, enhanced by signature accompaniments like deli mustard, pickles, Russian dressing, and, of course, soup!

As seen on Seinfeld, Mendy’s is a GLATT KOSHER Delicatessen — under OU Kosher supervision.

The food is indeed delicious, every single part of it. There was a huge UPS issue that resulted in the initial order being damaged and needing to be destroyed. As soon as I notified Gold belly of this issue, the customer support team resolved the matter timely and to my satisfaction.
