A Now-Closed Iconic New York Deli Is Back — And Giving Out Free Sandwiches
Carnegie Deli — the iconic Midtown delicatessen that closed in 2016 to the disappointment of many, many cult fans — is reopening in food truck form for three days in Manhattan.
And for those three days, the famous New York eatery will be handing out food free of charge. That’s right — it’s free.
Carnegie Deli’s bubblegum pink food truck will distribute its stacked pastrami sandwiches, pickles, vintage soda and gigantic black to customers in a variety of locations throughout NYC.
Excited? Well, the free goodies are all thanks to a promotion for the Amazon Prime Video series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” which is set in 1950s New York and features a multitude of deli scenes. The stunt will feature a fusion of old deli classics with a “Maisel” twist. “The Midge Maisel” sandwich for example, consists of rye bread, Russian dressing, Carnegie Deli pastrami, a “bit” of salami and coleslaw. The other option is “The Susie,” which is a high-stack of turkey, Russian dressing and Coleslaw on rye. Both come with a half-sour pickle, of course.

This isn’t the first time Carnegie Deli has risen from the dead to delight New Yorkers with cheap and delicious eats. Last December, in a similar promotion also tied to the Amazon Prime Video series, a Carnegie pop-up opened in Lower Manhattan for eight days, selling sandwiches for under a $1 and attracting crowds of thousands.
The Carnegie truck has been making stops since Monday, May 13, however there are still two days for New York locals to track down the bright pink monster. Today, May 14, you can spot the truck from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at 10 E. 37th St. and then from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. at 1886 Broadway. Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 15, the truck will be at 429 7th Ave. at 8:30 a.m. to noon and again from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. at 911 7th Ave.
