Deli, Not Delhi

Save the Deli : why didn't I think of this? Probably in my grief over the recent loss [over a year to be fair] of 2nd avenue deli I was blinded to the possibility. But not this enterprising fellow. He's also writing a book! Smart, very smart. Who wouldn't love to do a national Deli crawl? How much pastrami can one man or woman eat? Seems we'll find out.

In other news, I had read a few weeks back that 2nd Ave deli was relocating to a Murray Hill location. IMHO that isn't the best spot, cheap to be sure, but not well trafficked for deli. But Murray Hill is not far from me, so this isn't a complaint, merely an observation. Really outside of the corner of 10th street and 2nd avenue, what place is gonna be great? Exactly. None.

I admit I'm day-dreaming of sitting down to a half brisket, 1/2 matzoh ball soup combo, with a heap of health salad and downing a Cel-Ray . [Health salad was placed on the table with the menu; it’s basically coleslaw but instead of mayo it had a vinegary sweet dressing. The sweetness made it irresistible.] Ok ok, even though I griped a bit, I'm looking forward to 2ndAve Deli 2.0.

what a great name, "health salad". you may even love me more if it's the same recipe i posted under everday coleslaw. it sounds the same or similar and if it is, then you're 100 percent right, health salad goodness!
