New York Deli in Phoenix?!? by Garry P. at InsiderPages
Yes! And it's awesome!First of all, don't let the pastries on display to the right of the entrance scare you away. Sure, you might acquire 100 calories just looking, but have lunch or dinner first!It seems every time I've gone (I don't live in Phoenix anymore), my server is a native New Yorker. It only adds to the ambiance. So does the New York mural that surrounds you on the walls.First off is the pickled appetizer. One comes to every table, and it's a nice sampler.The entree selections are many and varied, but I just want to talk about my favorite sandwich, the Jersey Bound. A double-decker of pastrami and corned beef on great Jewish Rye with Russian dressing and cole slaw, this is one of those sandwiches that makes you wonder if you'll have to unhinge your jaw to take a bite. but, take that bite. It's amazing. Served with steak-cut fries, I'm not shy to ask for a to-go box so I can finish it the next day...or maybe just later!Chompie's also does take out and catering, and has a full deli counter...plus that pastry counter. There are also an abundance of flavors of bagels and bialys, as well as several selections of cream cheese to accompany them.And the lox? Fageddaboudit! It's fantastic!OK, time to go plan my next visit to Phoenix, now that the weather is nicer!
