Sandwich Share: The Colossal Reuben at Carnegie Deli

July 31, 2010 9:40 am ยท Posted by Nancy Einhart

Katz's Delicatessen on the Lower East Side arguably has the best pastrami in NYC, but Carnegie Deli has the biggest, without a doubt. Between the Bread reader Danielle recently ordered the $16 Reuben at the famous Midtown deli. All I can say is, OMG.

Write Danielle: "There is bread way down under the piles of pastrami. I added lots of mustard." It's possible to have too much meat, but you can never have too much mustard.

OMG does not even begin to describe this plate of heaven!! I love Reubens, but I almost never order them due to their high caloric content. This one would make me shatter my rule.

And furthermore, is that even a sandwich? It looks more like a casserole.

What?! No Katz's Deli? My all-time favorite pastrami and the location of Meg Ryan's fake orgasm scene in When Harry Met Sally. How can you go wrong?

Gals, Don't you know that its not the size that counts. Katz's reuben's weigh the same in both delis. Hand carved sandwiches cannot be piled as high in the center of the bread to make them look bigger.
