A fine stacking job has transcendental powers, turning ordinary antipasto into extraordinary sandwich masterpieces and uninspired piles of large rocks into Stonehenge. Feast on layered marvels with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of deli fare at Bob's East Side Deli.
Owned by a family hailing from Long Island, Bob's East Side Deli serves up sandwiches and lasagna made with specialty meats regularly delivered from the East Coast, as well as house-made desserts and breakfast baked goods. Hearty eats abound on the lunch menu, starring subs such as Marino's Special, a hoagie-bound feast of ham, salami, cappocolla, and pepperoni with cheese, veggies, and oil and vinegar ($6.59). Hot-sub classics such as the sausage and peppers ($6.99) warm up chilly bellies, and house-made lasagna ($7.29) gives deconstructionists an opportunity to visually expound their theories. A breakfast menu sates morning cravings with a Hungry Man special of three eggs, a big slab of ham, hash browns, and toast ($3.49), also available with cheese as a Hungry Man hero or burrito ($3.99). Bagels, muffins, and cookies, baked in-house, cap off meals or fulfill snack duties unaccompanied. Bob's East Side's pennant-adorned walls ensure that each meal gets cheered on like a motivational speaker at a lunchroom pep rally.
