All good things must come to an end and on December 31, 2016, the world famous Carnegie Deli will shut its doors after 79 years of mammoth sandwiches, towering cakes and stuffed derma that reminded you of holidays with your Bubbe.
The restaurant is closing because, according to the owner Marian Harper, the stress and pressures of the business got to be too much. Branches in Las Vegas and Pennsylvania casinos and in Madison Square Garden will still operate, but it’s not the same as sitting in the OG where “Broadway Danny Rose” was filmed.
The place is touristy, expensive (even a simple frankfurter costs $8.99) and always has a line around the block. The service is no frills, and the walls lined with celebrity autographed photos is far from high end. Somehow, all of that seems part of its charm and the NYC landmark’s closure marks the end of an era.
In case you can’t get to 7th Avenue and 55th Street in time for one last pastrami and corned beef sandwich with Russian dressing on the side, here are some recipes to pay homage to the (soon to be) late, great Carnegie Deli.
New York Deli Nachos -- Guacamole need not apply to this distinctly deli take on nachos where thick cut pastrami, melty cheddar cheese sauce and crunchy bagel chips take center stage.
Marc Murphy’s Chicken Pastrami Burger -- These juicy chicken burgers topped with warm pastrami, tangy pickled onions and honey mustard are perfect for any Oktoberfest celebration.
Reuben-Style Casserole with Pastrami Meatballs, Sauerkraut and Barley -- Beef and pork meatballs get the pastrami treatment with spices like coriander, garlic and paprika, then get baked into a savory casserole that gets finished with a tangy sour cream drizzle.
