The 2nd Ave Deli opened in 1954 on the second avenue in East Village. Original location closed in 2005 and reopened one in Upper East Side and one in Murray Hill. A waitress told me this location opened in 2008. 2nd Ave Deli is a one of iconic deli of New York City. I had checked of some of other famous delis in city, pastrami sandwich at Katz’s and Bagels and lox at Russ & Daughters. Carnegie Deli is my next stop but they’re temporarily closed right now, scheduled to reopen on next month.

Me and my friend Lord of the forks were here for lunch to try Pastrami and Brisket sandwiches. Result of patrolling: We both thought Pastrami was better than Brisket. Also Katz’s Pastrami and Brisket are both better than 2nd Ave Deli. BUT like I said this place is Bucket List so you should definitely try their sandwiches while you are in New York.
