A Sandwich A Day: Heavyweight at Lassen & Hennigs

A Sandwich a Day Hannah Smith-Drelich Post a comment

The sandwich itself is not much besides pastrami: a few shmears of mustard keep things together on Jewish rye. If you're still unconvinced this is the real deal, try their black and white cookies, homemade daily and with icing so freshly slicked you can still see the knife strokes in the fondant. More

Erin Zimmer 5 comments

In this latest episode of Food Curated from documentarian Liza de Guia, we meet Jay Parker, the third generation owner of the deli in Rego Park, Queens.

(that was pretty much a direct quote from the video). But even years later, the pastrami is still slow-cooked exactly the same way. More

There may be nothing funnier than seeing other countries take on your native foods. I hardly anticipated bagel greatness from Bagel Street at London's Heathrow Airport, but it's the sandwiches that were the real laugh. Like the Madison Avenue... More

Ben's Deli in Bay Terrace Will Stay in Current Location

Ed Levine Post a comment

Jewish delis, even fair-to-middlin' ones like mini chain Ben's, are an endangered species, so any time a deli stays open (especially one that almost fell into Panera's hands) is cause for celebration. [via Eater]... More
