When did the Carnegie Deli close? I love their sandwiches.

Is the term "samich" some low-class pronunciation of sandwich? I don't believe I've ever heard that.

The new restaurant Ditch Plains, owned by a couple of Australians, features an incredible lobster roll that is worth a visit. It's on Bedford Street in the Village.

I thought the lobster roll at Pearl was way better than Ditch Plains...and I hated the chips that came with it. And Lenny's is not just any corner deli...it's WAY better than most corner delis. That's my two cents

There is a fantastic place on Sullivan b/t Spring and Prince called Alidoro. It's a tiny Italian deli with one table in it. The best meat, cheese, and bread, and the sandwiches are enormous. They aren't cheap, but they easily make two meals.

Has this thread been edited? One of the posters stated that the Carnegie Deli is closed - and that post is now gone.

When I was a wee lad, I couldn't pronounce sandwich, so I said "samich." I have noticed that a lot of little kids pronounce it the same way.

I am going to be around Prince St. tomorrow. Maybe I will have a samich at Alidoro.

Sue, PamSF said the now closed Second Avenue Deli not Carnegie.

BTW, I agree with Pam.

I was going to answer your question by telling you to go to Manganaro's Hero Boy on 9th and 38th (for the best chicken cutlet sandwich in the city), but then I realized a guy who still calls it a "samich" is probably ok with just your everyday PB&J.
