Like the earth, a sandwich is made of layers and gathers its strength from its meaty core, which pushes condiments toward the crust to erupt and bury fingers in deliciousness. Let rivers of mayo magma run with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of sandwiches and salads at Gandolfo's New York Delicatessen, with locations on both Center Street and Pacific Street.
Gandolfo's salutes meats, grains, and greens by raising up more than 60 different fresh and homemade options. Many of the deli’s sandwiches pay homage to New York City, including the Manhattan Transfer, a hot sandwich comprised of cappicola, three potent cheeses, spicy mustard, and butter ($8.39), and the Rockefeller Reuben, a historic gathering of sauerkraut, choice deli meat, and russian dressing ($7.09). Gandolfo's famous box lunches are also available in 3-D form, and include side salads or other appetizing accompaniments.
Leafy salads, soups of the day, and Nathan's famous dogs also adorn the delicatessen’s menu. For sweet tongues, Gandolfo’s crew also churns out a variety of cookies in addition to the signature homemade chocolate mousse cake, which beckons dessert diehards with its grandiose antlers and soothing, alluring call ($1.99).
Gandolfo's New York Delicatessen
The first time Dan Pool bit into the freshly baked bread of a Gandolfo's New York Delicatessen sandwich, he loved it. In fact, he loved it so much that he bought the small New York City eatery and immediately began expanding it into a string of shops across the country. Today, these locations stay true to Gandolfo's original spirit with a menu of Big Apple classics, including Reuben sandwiches, Nathan's Famous all-beef hot dogs, and the dense, chewy bagels New Yorkers traditionally lob at passing cabs. The staff also stacks chicken-breast sandwiches on hero rolls and assembles nine different types of roast-beef sandwiches.
