[NYC] Stage Deli

New York is famous for its delis. Delicatessen is a term meaning “fine food” or “delicacies.” Not sure why pastrami and corned beef were once considered “fine food,” but I was determined to try some New York Style Deli.

One downside of travelling in winter is that the coldness can certainly get in the way of exploring the city and trying out new food. This was the case for our 2007 winter trip to NYC. In spite of how famous the Katz Deli was, we simply couldn’t drag our lazy bums all the way to the Lower East Side. We decided to go to Stage Deli because it was much closer to us.

We ordered corned beef and pastrami sandwiches. I had to say that we weren’t impressed. It was not nearly as juicy and delectable as the smoked meat sandwiches at Schwartz’s in Montreal. It was dry, especially the corned beef. The pastrami was nothing exceptional. I have to say that the smoked meat at Schwartz’s has been the golden standard of deli for us since we first got a taste of it in 2005.

Charles was content with the portion of the meat in the sandwiches though…
