The Carnegie Deli

On 7th Avenue between 54th and 55th Streets, an emporium of delightful delicacies reveals the true range of fabulous New York City eateries. The Carnegie Delicatessen, home of lean, tender, tasty pastrami and corned beef sandwiches you and your appetite will never forget!

Heavenly sandwiches such as these emerged from Eastern Europe in the 1700's and were brought to perfection when Germans, Romanians, Poles, and other Eastern Europeans immigrated to America.

Many Jewish immigrants started restaurants featuring the cooking of their youth. From the 1850's to today, these wonderful dishes are still sold in delicatessens dedicated to these rich, incredibly delicious foods, full of flavor, so enchanting to the taste. And so satisfying to the appetite. The traditions started long ago in Europe are now carried on by families like those owning The Carnegie Delicatessen.

From 6:30 a.m. ‘til 4 in the morning, anytime is a good time to tame your hunger. And you never know who you’ll run into as you can see by the "Wall of Fame," many celebrities like Janet Jackson and Alec Baldwin indulge in The Carnegie’s delicious delicacies.
