Gandolfo’s NY Deli

A new deli is coming to town. Gandolfo’s NY Deli will be opening this Fall at 107 E. Stuart Road off Meridian. This franchise is a West Coast phenomenon (there are none in NY). The menu items sport NY/C place names:  Radio City (Music Hall=Rockets), bridges (Brooklyn), counties (The Bronx) and an NYPD Bleu (chicken breast, ham, mozzarella lettuce tomato mayo spicy mustard s&p-hot). I wonder if they’ll have a cheesy 6′ Statue of Liberty lifting a wrapped hoagie greet me at the entrance like the store in Reno, NV.

Gandolfo is an Itlaian name, so this pairs well with NY images. I think it’ll be a touristy spot with kitchish paraphernalia. When they open, I’ll go for a visit and let you know if I feel less homesick for NY than when I eat at Old World Deli

I’ve eaten at several of the franchise’s delis while traveling and have to say, it’s probably my favorite stop. They actually offer deli items, like reubens and pastrami (try the Liberty). The sandwiches aren’t your boring standards and the deli salads are something I’d rather get than chips (try the mermaid salad). I think you’ll be pleased when you get the chance to try it.

If you want a quality NYsandwich , got to NY. This place has a lot of choices but most of them are just bread with sauce. Most of the sandwiches are bland and over priced. Subway has better prices and more choices in toppings. The people that own have no clue how to make a great hoagie.
