The Carnegie Deli & The Melo

In the city that never sleeps, there is a deli that stacks its meat so high that it takes 3 grown men to eat one sandwich. Established in 1937, the Carnegie Deli has entertained many famous celebrities, from actors to musicians, politicians to gangsters. And when you visit, you can peruse the list by looking at the many photos that fill the wall space. You think you know Hollywood? Check out the people who have managed to eat the famous “Broadway Danny Rose.” It’s a “who’s who” of comediennes and B-listers who have flocked through the deli doors.

But I’m not here to write about the famous…I’m here to talk about food. And on this trip to New York, my friends and I tackled the mighty “Melo.” Carmelo Anthony is the latest Knick to get his own sandwich and, much like the athletes’ size 14 shoe, this sucker is HUGE! Stacked with pastrami, salami, bacon and corn beef, it’s truly a heart attack on a platter.

Item shown is NOT actual size…it’s MUCH bigger!

Wayne HAD to  take a picture!

But it was just soooo good! And we all 3 walked away stuffed! Well…AFTER we had the cheesecake. THEN we were finished. And then I had to go for a walk around Times Square…to just allow my stomach to settle down a bit…

Ya GOTTA get the cheesecake! It’s FAMOUS!

Anthony only had the Pastrami. Lame…
