Cheesecake toped with cherries at Carnegie Deli is the perfect way to start the day.

In this podcast, the third and final from our trip to Manhattan, Tammy and I review two of the city’s most famous delis. Carnegie Deli is known for its cheesecake and Katz Deli for its sandwiches and that scene from the movie When Harry Met Sally.

Thank you again to everyone who gave us dining recommendations. Unfortunately, we can’t review them all, but we appreciate you steering us in the right direction. Diana, we loved the Boathouse Restaurant. Central Park is amazing! Kece, Ruby Foo’s was all you promised it would be. And Aixa, Havana Central was a lot of fun! We have an entire New York City archive of restaurants still to explore, so don’t be surprised if we set out for the east coast again.

  1. Wonderful saga of your deli visits.

  2. I didn’t really think of this, but since you did the deli tour, M_ would have to recommend Kiev at 117 2nd Ave.
    Sadly, Kiev seems to have gone away and is now an American Grill. Oh, well.
