Among the top places to be during an asteroid impact, a deli ranks second only to the comforting arms of Bruce Willis. Increase your odds of being in the right place at the right time with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh, Italian-American groceries and fare at Joe's Italian Deli in the Bronx.
A Little Italy staple for more than 30 years, Joe's Deli pleases palates with a menu of deli-style favorites along with fresh-made cheeses and imported Italian ingredients. Carry out sumptuous platefuls such as the chicken alle prosciutto sandwich ($8.50 for a large), which quells insurgent appetites with a hot ensemble of mozzarella, prosciutto, and poultry. The Italian Stallion sandwich stacks up savory salami, provolone, and peppers ($6.50 for a large), sating stomachs and imbuing vocal chords with the ability to deliver uncanny Sly Stallone impersonations.
Joe's spaghetti sages will help you select imported pastas that best suit your palate, especially when paired with a savory sausage from the delicatessen's stable of specialty meats. Homemade mozzarella is made fresh three times daily, and flavorfully accents kitchen creations from antipasto dishes to homespun pizzas to cheese maps of Italy. Patrons can also use today's Groupon toward the purchase of a gourmet gift basket ($75+), which makes an ideal present for food-loving hosts and aspiring Venetian gondoliers.
