There are three delis within two blocks of our apartment--but Lenny's is the one on speedial.
Started in the late 80s by Lenny--a young guy from Korea --there's 12 Lenny's all over Manhattan. But mine was the first.
Whenever I make noises about wanting to move out of NYC, all my hubster has to ask is, "What about Lenny's?" and I get back to reality. There's plenty of things I could leave behind--but never Lenny's!
The sandwiches are terrific--fresh and well-made. Jimmy T (grilled chicken with mozzarella and onions), Mikey (grilled roast beef with lettuce, tomato, grilled onion--hold the cheese), #2 Italian (salami, provolone, cappicola and all the fixings) , H-1 (real turkey with dressing and cranberry sauce)--all my faves. Plus they have breakfast and entrees.
What can be in the wrapper?
(Lenny's and I have nothing to do with each other--I'm just a customer. A very well-fed customer.)
**** I'm way, way, way behind in the ABC Along 2009. But I'm determined to catch up and finish in time. My focus of this ABC Along is NYC and NYS.
