Morry’s Deli served the first of its signature corned-beef sandwiches more than 50 years ago. As his eatery grew, founder Morry Orman called in his kids to help dispense triple-decker sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs to lines of patrons that sometimes stretched out the door—an experience recalled by his daughter, financial advisor and TV host Suze Orman, in the pages of her 2002 bestseller Suze Orman’s Financial Guidebook: Put the 9 Steps to Work. Today, an online ordering system speeds deliveries of overstuffed handhelds to homes and clandestine pastrami stockpiles throughout Hyde Park.
