This famous sandwich from Mendy’s Kosher Deli is like a Ruben, without the cheese. Sink your teeth into Mendy’s tender corned beef on fresh rye, piled high with any or all of these classic accompaniments – cole slaw, sauerkraut, deli mustard and Russian dressing. Served, of course, with a side of pickles.
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.
