Default Recommend a great NY Deli near Times Square?

We are sailing on the Norwegian Dawn out of NYC in September. I reserved 2 nights at the RadioCityApartments which is right next to Times Square. My DH would truly love to have an authentic New York Deli sandwich.

Any suggestions as to "the place to go" would be much appreciated.
Thanks

the Stage Deli is in the times square area. A classic new york Deli. The second avenue deli was the place to go but unfortunately it is closed.

The Stage is probably the best known.

Juniors just opened a restaurant between 44th and 45th. ANd there is Lindy's - it's on 7th Ave and 53rd St.

The Carnegie Deli is just a nice little walk away over on 7th Ave between 54th and 55th!

Of course, you'll have to get either corned beef or pastrami (or a combination of BOTH!) wherever you decide to eat!

YUM!

I think the food at Junior's is terrible. The cheesecake is ok.

Love the Carnegie deli - although you are at long tables and sit with other patrons. Talk about a large sandwich - that you will never see anywhere else.

Recommend going there.

Default Carnegie Deli

We have lived in Manhattan of over 35 years and have found the Carnegie to be the best in the city. If you are not big eaters, consider sharing a sandwich.

Here's another vote for the Carnegie Deli. I would pass on Junior's. I agree with smeyer418 - their cheesecake is ok but their food isn't very good and they are way overpriced.

How about Roxy's, we were really impressed with the speed of service wheen we were going to a show. It could well be a tourist place, but it worked for us

Hi TravelAbby,

When's the best time to eat at the Carnegie w/out the big crowds? We like a late lunch (early dinner) as we are both teachers. Do they have special hours, or are they open lunch through dinner?
Thanks! We will check it out this May.

Kel

Here is the website for the Carnegie Deli:
http://www.carnegiedeli.com/


Late lunch might be a good time when it isn't too crowded. You need to watch theater times and whether there are matinees or not. Restaurants near there are usually busy from 1 - 2:30 when there are 3:00 matinees and then 5:00 - 7:00 or 7:30 for evening shows.

Take a gander at the corned beef sandwich. I believe they charge you an extra $5 or so to split one, but it's one of those "gotta try it once" NY kinda things.....like NYE in Times Square.

Yeah....the prices are out of control, but ya gotta try it at least once!

Be sure to take lots of pictures of your food to show your friends back home who would never believe you if you tried to tell them about it!

HAHA!

Whenever I am in NYC, I have to get a corned beef and pastrami sandwich from either the Carnegie or the Stage Deli. People are serious about sharing a sandwich. Last time, I got a sandwich to go and when I got home I weighed it . There was over a pound of meat in it. Alot of people like a corned beef special- corned beef, russian dressing and coleslaw. If you split a sandwich and somehow still have room, you can always get dessert.
Enjoy,Judy
ps, eat a sandwich for me!

Okay, my world has just collapsed! The 2nd Ave Deli closed!!!! Ack! I guess, once I moved they just couldn't stay open without all of my business! Like smeyer, I prefer Katz's. They have the best pastrami in the city!
