NYC Eats: Carnegie Delicatessen

You may think with all the celebrity photos hung on the wall and a whole video with David Letterman might mean this is a good deli.  It’s just another tourist trap.  Food was bad and overpriced.  Their “world-famous” cheesecake looked burnt and overcooked on the outside to me.  The server’s attitude wasn’t aggressive, but they didn’t even smile.  You just don’t feel at ease whenever they pass by.

My ratings:
Price range: $-$$$

Pastrami omelette
With bagel and served with home fries
The fries were awful.  They were soggy and dry.  I saw another table returning all the home fries back to the kitchen.  The omlette was sitting in a puddle of grease.  The pastrami wasn’t too remarkable (quite dried out), I’ve had better ones in other deli (at least it’s better than the so called pastrami at Roxy).
