Corned beef, pastrami, turkey, matzah ball soup, pickles, knishes, cheesecake – yes, we’re talking about deli food, a nothing-fancy-but-oh-so-delicious culinary genre all its own! New York City is the American hub for world-famous delicatessen restaurants, since so many people emigrated there from Europe just a few generations ago, and now boasts dozens of family-owned deli landmarks. Make this trip to New York City one of a kind with a gift card that will treat you to three of the best meals in town: nosh your way through the Carnegie Deli, Katz’s Deli, and the 2nd Avenue Deli.
Founded in 1937, the world-famous Carnegie Deli is a true New York City landmark situated in Midtown on 7th Avenue at 55th Street. The restaurant is family-owned and operated, and also smokes and cures its own meats, and bakes it own renowned cheesecake and desserts. Celebrities, dignitaries, athletes, locals and out-of-towners continually come back for more – and you’ll want to, too!
Since 1888, Katz’s Deli has maintained the tradition of quality that made the restaurant a beloved deli among the immigrants who crowded into the Lower East Side over one hundred years ago. Since then, generations have stood before the carver as he skillfully carves piles of pastrami, turkey and corned beef.
The 2nd Avenue Deli started out as a ten-seat luncheonette, owned by European immigrant Abe Lebewohl. Over the past sixty years, the 2nd Avenue Deli has become one of New York’s most beloved restaurants, and has earned its reputation of serving the finest kosher Jewish culinary creations in the city.
By day you’ll enjoy old world European food, but by night you’ll be relaxing in modern comfort at the Grand Hyatt. Just steps away from Grand Central Terminal, Grand Hyatt New York boasts an ideal Manhattan location, and from your hotel room it’s a pleasant stroll to Park Avenue, Fifth Avenue, Central Park, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Broadway theaters and numerous opportunities for dining, shopping and entertainment.
