Speaking of walking in Woody Allen’s footsteps! Our last meal in NYC was at the Carnegie Deli in the theatre district where we aptly selected what the menu bills as
THE SANDWICH THAT MADE
“BROADWAY DANNY ROSE” FAMOUS…
“THE WOODY ALLEN”
For the dedicated fresser only! Lotsa corned beef plus lotsa pastrami.
Woody filmed “Broadway Danny Rose in 1984 in black & white with the iconic opening scene depicting a group of comedians having lunch at the Carnegie Deli – a place which has photos on the walls of everybody who’s anybody and which has barely changed over the past 30 years.
So what is a “fresser” you may ask? … “one who devours food, eating fast and hungrily” … perhaps borderline “gluttony”?
Wisely, Denis and I decided to share this humongous sandwich, piled 7-8” high with – to be completely honest — the best corned beef and pastrami we have ever had.
Enjoyed with well-done kosher pickles and sides of coleslaw and potato salad, and with the equally delicious rye bread generously slathered with Deli mustard, we had more than a huge meal each! Huge in size, huge in satisfaction, and not really so difficult to consume. I didn’t manage to match Denis’ heroic effort at completion, but I came close. This is a NYC treat not to be missed, but come Hungry with plenty of time to walk off the meal!
