Gandolfo's New York Delicatessen

Craig Gandolph entered the deli business in Long Island, making the sandwiches he’d always eaten growing up in New York. When love brought him to Salt Lake City, he missed the flavor of his hometown. So he opened the first Gandolfo’s New York Delicatessen and named his sandwiches after the Big Apple locales that he missed. Today, his little sandwich shop has grown to encompass dozens of franchises across the United States, slinging sandwiches from both brick-and-mortar joints and gridlocked food trucks.

The Mission Viejo location, one of four in California, is owned and operated by sisters Yami and Elizabeth Marin, according to a 2009 article in the Orange County Register. Yami's husband grew up in Queens and helped her discover deli food during many East Coast trips to visit his family. Inside the restaurant she shares with her sister, red accent walls, exposed ductwork, hardwood floors, and photographs of New York landmarks work together to transport diners to a New York deli.
